This land is being offered by direct sale for community purposes to Trinity County and the Weaverville Fire District, consistent with 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(1). It has been determined that the public lands in Section 5, Lots 21, 55, Section 6 Lots 6, 7, 11, 13, 18, 19 contain no known mineral values; therefore, mineral interests may be conveyed simultaneously. Section 6, Lots 23&24 of the SE and Section 7 Lot 44, do contain a significant mineral interest value for cobble and small boulder size placer tailings, a royalty of ten percent of the gross Fair Market Value of the free on board cobbles, boulders, sand and gravel after processing and prior to incurring transportation costs shall be reserved to the United States. Acceptance of the direct sale offer will qualify the purchaser to make application for conveyance of those mineral interests not reserved to the United States.
The land are not needed for Federal purposes. Conveyance is consistent with current BLM land use planning and would be in the public interest.
The patent, when issued, will be subject to the following terms, conditions and reservations:
1. A right-of-way for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States.
2. Third party rights
3. Protective covenant to protect an historic ditch and cultural site.
4. Section 6, Lots 23&24 of the SE and Section 7 Lot 44, do contain a significant mineral interest value for cobble and small boulder size placer tailings, a royalty of ten percent of the gross Fair Market Value of the free on board cobbles, boulders, sand and gravel after processing and prior to incurring transportation costs shall be reserved to the United States.
5. The patent will contain a hold harmless clause to protect the United States liability arising from local use of the land.

Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the lands will be segregated from all other forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the general mining laws.
