Keep your damned hands off public lands
Gold Butte is an area of about 350,000 acres of public lands located between the Overton Arm of Lake Mead National Recreation Area and the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument just west of Mesquite in southern Nevada near the Arizona border. Most of the area is currently designated as an Area of Critical Environmental Concern.
