Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Public land order.
This order revokes an Executive order and a public land order insofar as they affect 17.15 acres of National Forest System lands withdrawn for the Wise River Ranger Station and the Bureau of Land Management's Phosphate Reserve No. 12—Montana No. 3. The lands are no longer needed for these purposes and the revocation would make 14.90 acres available for exchange. These lands have been and will remain open to mineral leasing. The remaining 2.25 acres have been conveyed out of Federal ownership and this is a record-clearing action only for this portion.
