    We are getting a second chance to comment on the National Monument if you have the desire. National Monuments are totally controlled as recreational areas with location rights removed. In virtually all instances that I know of public use is at the whim of the agency and most activities are very much curtailed or stopped all together like prospecting. East Fork of the San Gabriel River is one that comes to mind that is most recent. There is a web site page that is devoted to this that is a part of the Trump Administration attempt to right some of the wrongs that were done to many of the citizens of America. the web site is   https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=DOI-2017-0002-0001
      This may also spur a change to the Antiquities Act of 1906 so that areas that are to be removed from public lands would have to go through a procedural Process with commenting not just signed in by a president without any public input.

    THERE IS STILL TIME TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD. Here is what is being said about the Bears Monument : Most significantly, Zinke proposes shrinking the boundaries of the current 1.35 million-acre monument to “be consistent with the intent of the (Antiquities) Act,” and asking Congress to authorize tribal co-management of whatever “designated cultural areas” remain after the shrinkage. He also suggests that Congress designate areas within the current monument boundaries as national recreation or conservation areas, and that it “clarify the intent of the management practices of wilderness or wilderness study areas within a monument.”
    A lot of monument have affected mining property from 1996 to present, this is a chance to open some of it up again.
