Fortification Creek Planning Area (FCPA).
The FCPA is located within the Powder River Basin (PRB) in Northeastern Wyoming. The FCPA is generally bounded on the northeast by Wild Horse Creek, on the west by the Powder River, and on the south by Fortification and Montgomery roads.
Total acreage within the boundaries of the FCPA is 100,655 acres. The plan addresses 79,362 acres of Federal mineral estate. Total Federal mineral estate in the FCPA is 93,159 acres; however, because the Wilderness Study Area (WSA) will not be developed, Federal mineral estate in the WSA was not included. There are approximately 42,755 acres of BLM surface land, 52,576 acres of private surface land, and 5,324 acres of State of Wyoming surface land in the area.
