Land board sides with SUWA on land issue concerning oil and gas development

The Interior Board of Land Appeals ruled in favor of the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance on 14,000 acres of land that had been previously approved for lease by the Bureau of Land Management in Utah's back country.

The board agreed with SUWA that the BLM had not made a real effort to identify fragile archaeological sites such as rock art and cliff dwellings prior to selling the contested leases.

Altogether there are 16 parcels of land involved in the ruling, including 11 that are located just north of Nine Mile Canyon. Five other parcels are in the Bookcliffs and Uintah County.
