Twain Resources, LLC; Notice of Preliminary Permit Application 
Accepted for Filing and Soliciting Comments, Motions To Intervene, and 
Competing Applications

    On December 12, 2014, Twain Resources, LLC, filed an application 
for a preliminary permit, pursuant to section 4(f) of the Federal Power 
Act (FPA), proposing to study the feasibility of the Tungstar Redux 
Water Power Project (Tungstar Redux Project or project) to be located 
at Pine Creek Mine and along Morgan and Pine Creek, near the City of 
Bishop in Inyo County, California. The sole purpose of a preliminary 
permit, if issued, is to grant the permit holder priority to file a 
license application during the permit term. A preliminary permit does 
not authorize the permit holder to perform any land-disturbing 
activities or otherwise enter upon lands or waters owned by others 
without the owners' express permission.
    The proposed project would consist of the following: (1) An intake 
of an unspecified design collecting Pine Creek Mine discharge water 
from its discharge point on Morgan Creek; (2) an 18-inch-diameter steel 
penstock of unspecified length with a 450-foot vertical drop: (3) A 
powerhouse: (4) a 600-kW impulse turbine connected to a 625-kVA 
generator; (5) a transmission line; (6) a substation connecting to an 
existing 56-kV main transmission line, and (7) appurtenant facilities. 
The estimated annual generation of the Tungstar Redux Project would be 
3,600 megawatt-hours.
