BLM REA COP 2010 Allowable Leasing Footprints For Tar Sand Extraction in Special Tar Sands Areas of Utah (PEIS Alternative B)


This data was developed to show the allowable leasing footprints for tar sand extraction in Special Tar Sands Areas of Utah in support of the Oil Shale / Tar Sands Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (OSTS PEIS) being developed for the Bureau of Land Management. It was developed by starting with land owned by the federal government, including certain split-estate lands (those with sub-surface mineral rights), and removing areas restricted to tar sand extraction such as Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs), Wild & Scenic Rivers, etc. The resulting footprint shown in this data was used for analysis of Alternative B of the OSTS PEIS.
