Unfortunately, the <a href="http://www.aspentimes.com/article/20130410/NEWS/130409822">BLM suspended the leases</a>, allowing the gas companies more time to attempt drilling in the Thompson Divide. On the positive side though the BLM also acknowledged that most of those leases were issued illegally and without proper environmental review or roadless-area protections and so they committed to doing an environmental review of the illegal leases.
