2. All minerals shall be reserved to the United States, together with the right to prospect for, mine and remove such deposits from the same under applicable law and such regulations as the Secretary of the Interior may prescribe.

And will be subject to:

1. Valid and existing rights;

2. Right-of-way N-1521 for the Southern Nevada Water Project granted to the Bureau of Reclamation, its successors or assigns, pursuant to the Act of December 5, 1924 (43 Stat 0672);

3. Right-of-way N-29996 for underground power distribution lines granted to Nevada Power Co., its successors or assigns, pursuant to the Act of October 21, 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1761);
