***... mining companies have filed hundreds of claims in the area in recent years***
When I lived in Moab, UT back in 1955, every bit of land had dozens of rock pile “claims” on them, even the area around Dead Horse Point had hundreds of these claims.
Last time I was there (1998)the claim piles were gone.

This mentally challenged loser in a 10 gallon hat is just another reason to throw this regime out in '12. What does this idiot know about anything he is "studying"? This hack Salazar was a shifty Ambulance chasing lawyer before his lifelong stint as a politician. This tool couldn't tell the difference between a piece of coal and black marble. What is he doing making decisions like this?

My bet is he’s doing the Regime’s bidding - the Iranian Regime that is. He will give Armanutjob the rights to mine the stuff by the truck loads by end of the year. It will raise our exports and hasten the return of 13th imam. All part of the plan. (/sarc)

18 months more of Obama and his anti-American collection of Enviro-Nazis. I hope the door hits Salazar in the butt the second he is DRIVEN out of office.
