Scroll to page 3-5 for Colfax and Mora County oil/gas leases by the Land Commissioner, Patrick Lyons, for June 15th, 2010 auction.

Mora County: 24 parcels north of Wagon Mound, East of 1-25 will be leased June 15th

Colfax County: 29 parcels North of Ortega Mesa will be leased June 15th

These parcels for auction are adjacent to White Peak. Call your commissioners, senator, representative, governor and the land commissioner and let them know your concerns over the leasing of this land. What will natural gas development in Mora and Colfax Counties do for the water, wildlife, the quality of air, land, and way-of-life for the citizens of these two counties? Look at what BP's drilling in the Gulf of Mexico has done for the oceans, the wildlife, and the people whose livelihood depends on the seas.
