The Bureau of Land Management held the Dry Canyon B coal lease sale at the BLM-Utah State Office in Salt Lake City. В The parcel offered contained 4,325 acres of federal minerals located in the Price Field Office. В The BLM received no bids for the federal coal lease rights during the sealed bid process.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land – the most of any Federal agency. В This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. В The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. В In Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000 American jobs. В The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that collects more revenue than it spends. В In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a $1.1 billion budget. В The BLM’s multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. В The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
