1.1.1 Historical hard rock mines have, over time, become significant roosting habitat
for dozens of wildlife species. In some cases, these artificial roosts serve as
surrogate habitats where natural cave roosts are no longer available. Adits and
shafts have expanded the range of some wildlife species. Hundreds of these
underground habitats provide year-round shelter for congregations of birds and
bats that sometimes number in the thousands of individuals per roost.
1.1.2 Anticipated end products include stable cave/mine roosting bat and bird habitats
as well as the security of the traveling public when in close proximity to these
1.1.3 The purpose of this RFP is to ensure the availability of qualified construction
professionals on an “as needed” basis for the entire geographical area of the State.
Therefore, this contract may be awarded to multiple vendors to meet the
geographical coverage within the State of Nevada.
Steel gates or grates will be constructed in adits, shafts, stopes or any other AML feature as
agreed to by the awarded vendor(s) and the State’s designee. The purpose of these gates or
grates is to maintain airflow and wildlife access while preventing unauthorized human access
into the mine.
