Plaintiffs bring this action to enforce this Court’s prior ruling in American Independence Mines & Minerals Co. v. United States Department of Agriculture, et al., No. 1:00-cv-00291-BLW (D. Idaho). In that case, Chief District Judge B. Lynn Winmill ordered that the Forest Service may allow only very limited mineral confirmation activities in the Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness for purposes of trying to prove the validity of two preexisting mining claims at the Golden Hand mining site. See Mem. Decision, Am. Independence Mines & Minerals Co. v. United States Dept. of Agric., No. 1:00-cv-00291-BLW (D. Idaho Aug. 9, 2002) (hereafter “AIMMCO v. USDA”).
