USFWS decrees protected zone around rare flower near proposed lithium mine in Nevada

Feb 2 (Reuters) - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will permanently zone off 910 acres (368 hectares) near ioneer Ltd's (INR.AX) proposed lithium mine in Nevada to preserve a rare flower, a major step forward in the project's bid to proceed.

Ioneer aims to build one of the largest U.S. lithium mines and produce the electric vehicle battery metal. The protection plan is set to be filed in the Federal Register on Thursday and will then be open for 60 days of public comment.
