Start Preamble


Bureau of Land Management, Interior.




This notice amends previous notice from Volume 64, Number 241, page 70279-70282, dated December 16, 1999. In the previous notice the Bureau of Land Management proposed to withdraw 131,340 acres of public land to protect the scenic and recreational values of portions of the Colorado, Dolores, and Green river corridors in Southeastern Utah. The previous notice segregated the lands for up to 2 years from location and entry under the United States mining laws. This amendment deletes approximately 4,000 acres from the proposed withdrawal area. The subject 4,000 acres are located on the west side of the Green River in Desolation Canyon, Carbon County, and lie within an area already withdrawn as Naval Oil Shale Reserve 2. The public meeting in Moab will be held in the Grand County Courthouse, 125 E. Center Street, Moab, instead of the BLM Field Office.


Effective date is January 19, 2000.


Comments should be sent to the Moab Field Office Manager, 82 East Dogwood Avenue, Moab, Utah 84532.
