SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The lands described in Paragraph (a) will remain closed to surface entry and mining until a planning analysis and review is completed to determine if any of the lands need special designation or protection. If such lands are deemed appropriate for surface entry, including entry under the mining laws, a subsequent Notice of Opening will be published in the Federal Register to address such a finding and potentially open such lands to entry. This is a record clearing action only for the lands described in Paragraph (b) which have been conveyed from Federal ownership.
