Wyoming's Ruby and Sapphire Deposits

Wyoming likely has some of the larger rubies in North America. We found evidence for several ruby and sapphire deposits in a number of localities in the State, but ran into road blocks by the Director of the Wyoming Geological Survey following every major discovery. One must wonder why a political geologist would not want his staff to make mineral discoveries?
