Notice of the filing by the United States Forest Service of a withdrawal application with respect to the following described lands was published in the Federal Register on September 24, 2001:

T. 8 N., R. 5 W.,

Sec. 19, lots 7, 10, 12, and 15;

T. 2 N., R. 10 W.,

Sec. 5, N1/2NE1/4 and W1/2, excluding Patent Nos. 532788, 4955, 562258, and 53541;

Sec. 6, E1/2, E1/2NW1/4, and NE1/4SW1/4, excluding Patent Nos. 433087, 535541, 562258, and 881285.

T. 3 N., R. 10 W.,

Sec. 31, SE1/4NE1/4, SE1/4SW1/4, and SE1/4; Sec. 32, W1/4NE1/4, W1/2, and SE1/4, excluding Patent No. 532788.

The areas described aggregate approximately 2,173 acres in Silver Bow, Jefferson, Powell, and Lewis and Clark Counties, Montana.

Publication of the notice of the withdrawal application segregated the lands for a two-year period, which expired on September 24, 2003, pursuant to 43 CFR 2091.5-1(b)(1). Publication did not segregate the lands from surface entry and mineral leasing.

The proposed withdrawal is no longer necessary, because the Forest Service has completed all reclamation activities in this area. The withdrawal application is, therefore, cancelled.
