SUMMARY:

The following public lands in Hot Springs County, Wyoming have been examined and found suitable for direct sale under Section 203 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (90 Stat. 2750, 43 U.S.C. 1713), at not less than the appraised fair market value.

Containing approximately 30 acres.

The land described is hereby segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, pending disposition of this action or 270 days from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, whichever occurs first. This land is being offered by direct sale to Ken Carswell, who is the owner of sawmill facilities located on the site, authorized under a lease.

Acceptance of the direct sale offer will qualify the purchaser to make application for conveyance of those mineral interests. The patent, when issued, will contain certain reservations to the United States and will be subject to rights-of-way and mineral leases of record. Detailed information concerning this action is available for review at the Worland Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, 101 S. 23rd St. (P.O. Box 119), Worland, Wyoming 82401-0119.
