Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Public Land Order.
This order revokes a Secretarial order insofar as it affects 1,262.05 acres of public lands withdrawn for the Bureau of Reclamation's Newlands Project. The lands are no longer needed for reclamation purposes, and the revocation is necessary to facilitate a pending land exchange. The lands are temporarily closed to surface entry and mining due to an overlapping segregation for an exchange proposal. The lands have been and will remain open to mineral leasing.
