Mineral Withdrawal-Southern Oregon
Our esteemed "southbound end of the proverbial nothbound burro" governator has written letters to the Secretary of Agriculture and Secretary of Interior requesting Mineral entry withdrawal of lands in Southern Oregon surrounding Kalmiopsis, Wild Rogue and Copper/Salmon wilderness areas. He has been under pressure from the green faction to do this as a first salvo in getting those three areas and everything around them made into one giant ONE MILLION acre wilderness area.
Mineral withdrawal means you cannot file a mining claim on the ground in accordance with the 1872 mining law.
We need to write both Secretaraies SOONEST and demand this not be withdrawn.
Creek 'n Trail ends up right at the south tip of Kalmiopsis, so we would definately lose this trail if this proposal for combining those areas comes true.
