Feds launching review of mine at site of endangered flower


              FILE - This photo provided by the Center for Biological Diversity taken in June 2019, in the Silver Peak Range of western Nevada about halfway between Reno and Las Vegas shows Tiehm's buckwheat growing in the high desert where a lithium mine is planned. Just days after U.S. wildlife officials declared the Nevada wildflower endangered at the site of a proposed lithium mine, federal land managers are initiating the final stage of permitting for the project the developer says will allow the mine and flower to co-exist.
