The following described public land in Douglas County, Oregon, has been examined and found suitable for sale under sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (90 Stat. 2750, 43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719). The parcel proposed for sale is identified as follows:

Willamette Meridian, Oregon

T. 25 S., R. 5 W.,

Parcel B, in DLC 52.

The area described contains 0.08 acre, more or less. Said legal description is subject to final approval and acceptance of a Cadastral Survey. This parcel will be sold at no less than the appraised market value, which has been determined to be $7,254.

In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0-6(c)(3)(iii) direct sale procedures are appropriate since the land is needed for a public purpose.

Douglas County will be allowed 30 days from receipt of a written offer to submit a deposit of at least 20 percent of the appraised market value of the parcel, and within 180 days thereafter to submit the balance.

The following rights, reservations, and conditions will be included in the Deed conveying the land:

1. A reservation to the United States for a right-of-way for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States. Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).

2. The Deed would also include a notice and indemnification statement under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (42 U.S.C. 9620) holding the United States harmless from any release of hazardous materials that may have occurred as a result of the unauthorized use of the property by other parties.

The mineral interests being offered for conveyance have no known value. Acceptance of the direct sale offer constitutes an application for conveyance of the mineral interests also being offered under the authority of Section 209(b) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1719). In addition to the full purchase price, a nonrefundable fee of $50 will be required for purchase of the mineral interests to be conveyed simultaneously with the sale of the land.

The land described is 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, whichever occurs first.

Detailed information concerning this land sale, including the reservations, sale procedures and conditions, planning and environmental documents, and mineral report is available for review at the Roseburg District Office, Bureau of Land Management, 777 NW.
