BLM Issues Decision on the
North Dutch John 2D Geophysical Exploration


The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Rock Springs Field Office issued its Decision Record and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) on the North Dutch John 2D geophysical project environmental analysis.

The project area is approximately 55 miles southwest of Rock Springs, Wyo., intersecting Highway 191 South, Sweetwater County Road 33 and Iron Mountain Road.

The project consists of three phases: surveying the locations; drilling and loading shot holes; and laying out geophones and recording data. The project may take place over 27 working days in August 2010. Locations of the seismic lines have been chosen to minimize impacts to vegetation and wildlife.

To view the FONSI, or for more information, visit the website at:  www.blm.gov/wy/st/en/info/NEPA/rsfodocs/nodutchjohn2d.html. Questions may be directed to Kimberlee Foster at 307-352-0273.



The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to manage and conserve the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations under our mandate of multiple-use and sustained yield. In Fiscal Year 2013, the BLM generated $4.7 billion in receipts from public lands.
