Thread: BLM database

  1. #1

    BLM database

    From http://www.sltrib.com/news/1960442-1...hts?fullpage=1

    The agency maintains a database of known sites, but its adequacy has been challenged numerous times and the BLM conceded it is far from complete.
    Ewing spent a recent afternoon roaming a parcel to be leased near Coal Bed Village, an important archaeological area east of Blanding where the Anasazi once thrived. Ewing detected 10 archaeological features that are not listed on the BLM database.
    So how does one access this database? Ewing apparently has a copy. A FOIA request?

    It appears it may actually be exempted from FOIA.

    There are no zip files associated with these posts. So I have no idea what you've downloaded.

    There have been policy changes over the last year with BLM. They used to pass out information like candy on Halloween, then it became "if you know the name, we will tell you" now many times they flat out refuse. It seems that National Parks and other agencies are putting pressure on BLM to button up according to some NP and BLM Rangers I have talked with. Much information is of course on the internet that is one reason why I joined this group today. One of your members (Doc) was inquiring about when (if ever) Black Canyon will ever reopen. Personally I believe the sites most visited are the safest for the most part.
