Notice of segregation.
The mineral interests owned by the United States in the land described in this notice, aggregating 160 acres, are segregated and made unavailable for filings under the general mining laws and the mineral leasing laws to determine the suitability for conveyance of the reserved mineral interest pursuant to section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of October 21, 1976. The mineral interests may be conveyed in whole or in part upon favorable mineral examination. The purpose is to allow consolidation of surface and subsurface of minerals ownership where there are no known mineral values or in those instances where the reservation interferes with or precludes appropriate non-mineral development and such development is a more beneficial use of the land than the mineral development.Start Further Info
