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:
Mount Diablo Meridian, Madera County, California
T. 9 S., R. 22 E., Sec. 6, described as follows:
“All coal and other minerals within that portion of Parcel 2 of Parcel Map 2415 recorded October 24, 1985 in the office of the County Recorder, County of Madera, State of California, in Book 31, of Maps, at Page 173, that is within a portion of Lot 3 of Section 6, T. 9 S., R. 22 E., Mount Diablo Base and Meridian, according to the official plat thereof, as reserved in patent number 1096001 dated March 11, 1938, together with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove the same pursuant to the provisions and limitations of the Act of December 29, 1916 (39 Stat., 862). Containing 25 acres, more or less.”
Effective immediately, 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 no later than the date specified above in this notice for that purpose. 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 non-mineral development and such development is a more beneficial use of the land than the mineral development.
On December 17, 2007 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 patent or deed of such mineral interest; upon final rejection of the mineral conveyance application; or 2 years from the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, whichever occurs first.
