Mineral Resources of the Bobcat Draw Badlands Wilderness Study Area, Big Horn and Washakie Counties, Wyoming

Description: Abstract: The Bobcat Draw (WY-010-126) Wilderness Study Area includes about 17,150 acres and is located about 45 mi (miles) by road west of Worland in the Bighorn basin. The arid landscape comprises treeless uplands drained by intermittent streams. No identified resources are in the Bobcat Draw Wilderness Study Area. Most of the area is currently under lease for oil and gas. The study area has a high potential for resources of oil and gas and a high potential for subeconomic resources of deeply buried coal. The potential for a deep-seated geothermal energy resource is moderate. The resource potential for oil shale and metals, including uranium, is low.
