Notice is hereby given that pursuant to Section 209 of the Act of October 21, 1976 (90 Stat. 2757), Stephen E. Evensen has filed an application to purchase the Federally-owned mineral estate in the land described below:

Willamette Meridian,

T. 37 S., R. 05 W.,

Sec. 09, W1/2NW1/4SE1/4.

The area described contains 20 acres, more or less, in Josephine County, Oregon. On May 19, 2004, the surface estate was offered to the Evensen family following the processing of a class 1 application for Color-of-Title (OR-57154). Mr. Evensen desires to acquire the mineral estate beneath the 20 acres of BLM administered lands included in the color-of-title application to effectively acquire fee title to the land. The mineral interests being offered for conveyance have no known mineral value.

Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the mineral interest described above will be segregated to the extent that it will not be subject to appropriation under the public land laws including the mineral laws. The segregative effect of the application shall terminate either upon issuance of a patent or other document of conveyance to such mineral interests, upon final rejection of the application, or two years from the date of filing of the application, June 30, 2004, whichever comes first.
