After doing a quick search on Archuleta Mesa and the Dulce base, I found some actual info where some of these Dulce authors are getting there theories
from. The following link shows an actual agreement with the Southern Ute tribe and the U.S. Dept. of Interior.
Archuleta Mesa, reservation of mineral rights by U.S.
"(b) In exchange for such conveyance, the Secretary of the Interior is authorized to transfer to the United States in trust for the Southern Ute
Indian Tribe, subject to valid existing rights, public lands on the Archuleta Mesa, reserving to the United States the minerals therein and the right
to prospect for and remove them under regulations of
the Secretary of the Interior, that are contiguous to the present eastern boundary of the Southern Ute Indian Reservation, and that have a value equal
to or not materially greater than the value of the lands conveyed by the tribe, such values to be determined by the Secretary: Provided, That such
public lands shall be selected in a manner that will not increase the Government's management problem for other public lands, the selection shall be
approved by the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, and the Southern Ute Indian Tribe shall pay to the United States any difference in the values of the lands
When you look into the Dulce theories, one thing that comes up is an agreement between the indian tribe and the govt. Here is a link that shows an
example of what I'm talking about.
"Gabe and Edmound both told me that in 1978 there was an agreement between the Ute Indians [Colorado] and the Federal Government. This agreement
consisted of the Ute Nation receiving all the territory now occupied along the New Mexico/Colorado border with the explicit agreement that they would
strictly enforce a 'NO TRESPASSING' regulation along the border of their territory. Therefore, it is not possible to even cross the Ute Reservation
without special permission from the Tribal Headquarters. If caught without this permission you are liable for a fine and/or jail and expulsion. There
is now a road leading to the Archuleta area through the reservation. It is patrolled by the Indian Forest Service (Note: the Colorado border is only a
relatively few miles away from and to the north of the Archuleta plateau. - Branton)"
Another thing that shows up in the first link I provided is that there is the Navajo/Colorado River unit, presumably referrence to a energy generating
dam on the Navajo river.
"(c) The owners of the range improvements of a permanent nature placed, under the authority of a permit from or agreement with the United States, on
the public lands conveyed to the tribe shall be compensated for the reasonable value of such improvements, as determined by the Secretary, out of
appropriations available for the construction of the Navajo unit, Colorado River storage project.
(d) Persons whose grazing permits, licenses, or leases on the public lands conveyed to the tribe are canceled because of such conveyance shall be
compensated in accordance with the standard prescribed by the Act of July 9, 1942, as amended (43 U. S. C. 315q), out of appropriations available for
the construction of the Navajo unit, Colorado River storage project."
The following link shows a theorist based remark about the base getting it's energy from a dam on the Navajo river.
Energy from Navajo river
"The base gets water and power from a dam on the Navajo River, and expells waste water back into the Navajo River."
Whether you believe in the Dulce base theory, it's interesting to find the actual information that the theorists are getting their info from.
If anyone else has links/info they can provide, please go ahead.
