The 1986 BLM Shoshone-Eureka Resource Management Plan identifies these parcels of public land as suitable for disposal. The sale meets the disposal qualification of Section 205 of the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000, 43 U.S.C. 2304. The sale will be subject to the provisions of FLPMA and applicable regulations of the Secretary of the Interior, and will contain the reservation to the United States of a right-of-way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).

On publication of this notice in the Federal Register, the described land will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. On segregation, the BLM will no longer accept land use applications affecting the identified public land, except applications for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or two years after the date of publication of this notice, unless extended by the BLM Nevada State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date.
