The desert-land classification for N-58996 was made on April 8, 1982, pursuant to the Desert Land Act (19 Stat. 377; 43 U.S.C. 321-323), as amended by the Act of March 3, 1891 (26 Stat. 1096; 43 U.S.C. 231, 323, 325, 327-329). The land was classified as suitable for entry under the desert-land laws.
Desert Land Entry Application N-27917 was filed on December 31, 1979, by Daniel R. Cassinelli, for 60 acres of public land in Humboldt County. Nevada. The application was not approved for entry because of economic unfeasibility, and because water, necessary to allow entry, was determined to be unavailable by the State of Nevada Water Engineer. The case was closed on November 16, 1984.
Desert Land Entry Application N-27917 and classification N-58996 are hereby terminated for the following described 60 acres:
