BLACK HILLS FOREST ISSUE TO FIGHT

      

Federal Land Withdrawal of the BLACK HILLS National Forest an ISSUE TO FIGHT 

By Jan Baumeister, RMFMS PLAC/ALAA SD

There is an issue of conflict over the usage of our forest—some people are interested in the flora-grass, flowers and natural ecosystem and others like to pan gold and collect mineral specimens. Their differing visions have now brought them into conflict over a Forest Service proposal to ban new mining claims at 11 sites totaling 17,487 acres. While the proposal, known as a mineral withdrawal, covers only about 2 percent of the Black Hills National Forest's total area, amateur prospectors contend that the targeted sites contain more than half of the promising mining areas that remain unclaimed in the Black Hills.  Some think the proposal is part of a broader effort by the Forest Service and other federal agencies to restrict access to public land.

Their competing opinions about the mining ban will ultimately be weighed by the U.S. secretary of interior, who is tentatively scheduled to decide the proposal’s fate by the end of September 2016.

We still have two weeks to call or write letters.

Written public comments on the proposal will be accepted by the

Forest Supervisor
