The Little Dog and Pup Canyons Roadless Area comprises about 41 sq mi along the precipitous west escarpment of the Guadalupe Mountains in southeastern New Mexico. On the basis of a mineral survey area is considered to have a portable potential for oil and (or) gas resources and little likelihood for the occurrence of other mineral or energy resources. Only the drilling of exploratory holes in or near the roadless area could conclusively determine its resource potential for oil and (or) gas.
