The surface owner of the following described land 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 land:
T. 19 S., R. 25 E.,
Sec. 28, NE1/4SE1/4 and S1/2S1/2.
The area described contains 200 acres, more or less, in Harney County, Oregon.
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.
Upon publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the mineral interest described above 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 of the application shall terminate upon issuance of a patent or deed to such mineral interests; or upon final rejection of the application, or two years from the date of filing of the application whichever comes first.
