T. 40 S., R. 11 E.
Section 26 SW1/4SW1/4
Section 35 NW1/4NW1/4.
Containing approximately 80 acres.
The above described land is hereby segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, but not from sale under the above cited statutes, for 270 days or until title transfer is completed or the segregation is terminated by publication in the Federal Register, which ever occurs first.
This land is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and is not suitable for management by another Federal agency. No significant resource values will be affected by this disposal. The sale is consistent with BLM's planning for the land involved and the public interest will be served by the sale.
Purchasers must be U.S. citizens, 18 years of age or older, a state or state instrumentality authorized to hold property, or a corporation authorized to own real estate in the state in which the land is located.
The lands are being offered to Don Rajnus using the direct sale procedures authorized under 43 CFR 2743.3-3. Direct sale is appropriate because there is no public access to the public lands and the public lands are surrounded by lands owned by Don Rajnus.
The terms, conditions, and reservations applicable to this sale are as follows:
1. A right-of-way for ditches and canals will be reserved to the United States in under 43 U.S.C. 945.
2. All oil and gas and geothermal resources in the land will be reserved to the United States in accordance with Section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976.
3. The mineral interests being offered for conveyance have no known mineral value. The acceptance of a direct sale offer will constitute an application for conveyance of the mineral estate, with the exception of the oil and gas and geothermal interests which will be reserved to the United States in accordance with Section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976.
4. Patents will be issued subject to all valid existing rights and reservations of record.
If land identified in this notice is not sold it will be offered competitively on a continuing basis until sold.
Detailed information concerning the sale, including the reservations, sale procedures, and planning and environmental documents, is available at the Klamath Falls Field Office, 2795 Anderson Ave, Building 25, Klamath Falls, OR 97603.
