Moffat County news round-up: BLM opens public comment on 20 parcels slated for mineral lease sale

The Bureau of Land Management’s Little Snake Field Office has opened public comment on 20 parcels in Moffat, Routt and Rio Blanco counties slated for a competitive mineral lease sale in February. The parcels total 12,038 acres of federal mineral estate, with 47 percent being under the management of the BLM and 53 percent under non-federal management. The Little Snake Field Office considered offering an additional 39 parcels totaling 51,100 acres for the February sale, but deferred because the units have been designated as preliminary priority Sage Grouse habitat. The majority of those additional parcels are located in Moffat County.
