Bureau of Land Management, Interior.
Public land order.
This order partially revokes an Executive Order insofar as it affects 240 acres of lands withdrawn for Bureau of Land Management Public Water Reserve No. 61. This revocation is in aid of the exchange legislated by the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Act of 2000, Public Law 106-399. The lands have been open to metalliferous mining and mineral leasing under the terms of the withdrawal, but are temporarily closed to surface entry and all mining due to the pending legislated land exchange.
