The total area described aggregates 1,159.56 acres.
The segregation no longer serves any purpose; accordingly, pursuant to the Act of June 28, 1934, as amended, at 10 a.m. on July 21, 2004 the above described land will become open to the operation of the public land laws generally, subject to valid existing rights, the provisions of existing withdrawals, and the requirements of applicable laws, rules, and regulations.
The above described lands will become open to the mineral leasing laws, material disposal laws, and location under the United States mining laws. Appropriation of the land under the general mining laws prior to the date and time restoration is not authorized. Any such attempted appropriation, including attempted adverse possession under 30 U.S.C. 38, shall vest no rights against the United States. State law governs activities necessary to locate and initiate a right of possession unless the state law conflicts with Federal law.
The Bureau of Land Management will not intervene in disputes between rival locators over possessory rights because the Mining law states that such disputes must be settled in local courts.Start Signature
