A 1980 Bureau of Land Management report recommended the area as unsuitable for wilderness designation, as the mineral resources identified in the study were likely to be commercially viable. These included copper, lead, silver and talc, all of which had been historically extracted in the area.
The area was given wilderness status on 21 October 1994.
The area is not known to support any listed, sensitive or rare species.[Note 1]
