An attempt to balance industrial requirements for natural materials with continued protection of public lands, as set forth years before by President Theodore Roosevelt, a champion of national parks and forests who passed away the year before the Minerals Leasing Act was signed into law. A follow-on to the General Mining Act of 1872, which allowed for virtually unfettered commercial exploitation of public lands, the 1920 Act was intended to ensure greater oversight by the government, through the administration of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, of private mining, drilling and foresting operations, with increased revenue gained through the leasing arrangements, flowing into federal coffers. Under the provisions of the General Mining and Minerals Leasing Acts, millions of acres of public land became available to private companies to explore for and exploit minerals, oil and other natural resources. -Quality Counts!
