Wyoming Not Top Bidder for Checkerboard Lands

The state will not be purchasing private parcels and mineral rights offered by Occidental Petroleum along the I-80 corridor, according to a syndicated report posted yesterday by The Salt Lake Tribune.

The area includes public lands affected by the Rock Springs RMP amendments.

The story did not indicate who submitted the successful bid or how the lands would be used but did note that they could be leased for grazing or alternate energy projects.
