I applaud the groups for their action. The land was acquired to protect the watersheds from the abuse at the hands of industry for the citizens. I see no problem with requiring a NEPA study to protect the surface. Like most of the ordinary people, it is disheartening to see the drastic changes of the surface being allowed to spread on acre after acre that amount to theft of the public land for profit. On the contrary to a previous comment, the industry thinks the ANF is their private moneymaker.

Turn that around. Let the mineral owners, some of whom originally bought the mineral rights they now own at tax sale back years ago; let them try and purchase the surface now managed for the citizens of the US. See how that goes. No ANF?? Ain't gonna happen; and yes, lots of people are very "sickofit". Why the Forest Service didn't buy those tax-saled mineral rights located on Federal land when they were available is mystifying like so many things are here.

So what you have is a stalemate, and it isn't going to work for anyone. Look for for more of the same, or maybe worse. The Feds aren't going to hand over the surface, nor are they going to purchase the minerals.
