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 of the Federally owned mineral interest in the lands:

Salt Lake Base and Meridian, Salt Lake County, Utah

T. 4 S., R 3 W.,

Section 11; Lots 7, 8, 16-18, SE1/4SE1/4;

Section 12; Lots 7, 10, 11, S1/2SW1/4;

Section 13; Lots 2, 3, NW1/4, N1/2SW1/4, S1/2SE1/4;

Section 14; Lots 7-12, NE1/4NE1/4;

Section 24; Lots 5-10.

The BLM will process the pending application in accordance with the regulations in 43 CFR part 2720. The regulations provide for the purchase of the Federally owned mineral interest to consolidate the surface and subsurface mineral ownership in cases 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 and subject to valid and existing rights, the mineral interests owned by the United State in the private lands covered by the application shall 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: (1) Issuance of a patent or deed of such mineral interest; (2) upon final rejection of the mineral conveyance application; or (3) two years from the date of publication of this notice, whichever occurs first.
