The tract of land referred to above in this notice consists of 0.26 acres of land, situated in Nevada County, and is described as follows:
Mount Diablo Meridian, California
T. 16 N., R. 8 E., Sec. 13, Lot 13.
Under certain conditions, Section 209(b) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1719(b)) authorizes the sale and conveyance of the Federally owned mineral interests in land when the non-mineral, or so called “surface” interest in the land is not Federally owned, provided either one of the following conditions exist: (1) There are no known mineral values in the land; or (2) where continued Federal ownership of the mineral interests interferes with or precludes appropriate non-mineral development and such development is a more beneficial use of the land than mineral development.
In accordance with section 209(b) of the 1976 Act and 43 CFR part 2720, on May 25, 2006, an application was filed for the sale and conveyance of the Federally owned mineral interest in the above-described tract of land.
Publication of this notice segregates, subject to valid existing rights, the Federally owned mineral interests in the public lands referenced above in this notice from appropriation under the general mining and mineral leasing laws, while the application is being processed to determine if either one of the two specified conditions exists and, if so, to otherwise comply with the procedural requirements of 43 CFR part 2720.
The segregative effect shall terminate: (i) Upon issuance of a patent or other document of conveyance as to such mineral interests; (ii) upon final rejection of the application; or (iii) two years from the date of filing the application, whichever occurs first.
