We had posted the wrong year date in our article titled: Historic opportunity to purchase & retire Lexam’s mineral rights under the Great Sand Dunes Nat’l Park, Baca Wildlife Refuge & R.G. National Forest.  The date should read May 17, 2010.
Our apologies for the error.
The paragraph should read:
“Ongoing settlement negotiations have resulted in an interim agreement wherein Lexam Explorations would divest itself of its mineral rights in the San Luis Valley if a $ 9.7 million deal can be inked by May 17, 2010.  Most of these mineral rights are beneath the public lands contained within the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve Act of 2000, originally part of the historic Luis Maria Baca Grant #4, former Baca Ranch, which was purchased on behalf of the American public for $33 million. Final appropriation occurred in 2004.
