The surface owner of the following described lands has filed an application pursuant to section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1719(b), for the purchase and conveyance of the Federally-owned mineral interest in the following described lands:
Gila and Salt River Base and Meridian, Yavapai County, Arizona.
T. 10 N., R. 4 W.,
Sec. 20, All.
Total Acres 640.00 more or less.
Effective immediately, the BLM will process the pending application in accordance with the regulations stated in 43 CFR part 2720. Written comments concerning the application must be received by no later than the date specified above in this notice. The purpose for a purchase and conveyance is to allow consolidation of surface and subsurface minerals ownership where (1) there are no known mineral values or (2) in those instances where the Federal mineral interest reservation interferes with or precludes appropriate nonmineral development and such development is a more beneficial use of the land than the mineral development.
On November 15, 2006, the mineral interests owned by the United States in the above described lands will be segregated to the extent that they will not be subject to appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. The segregative effect shall terminate upon issuance of a patent or deed of such mineral interest; upon final rejection of the mineral conveyance application; or November 17, 2008, whichever occurs first.
