1. Public Land Order No. 7662 (71 FR 26108 (2006)) partially revoked Public Land Order No. 5047. The United States Forest Service has decided that the previously withdrawn land, described below, can be opened to the United States mining laws:

Sawtooth National Forest

Salt Lake Meridian

T. 14 N., R. 13 W.,

Sec. 8, E1/2SE1/4SE1/4;

Sec. 9, S1/2S1/2 and S1/2NE1/4SE1/4.

The area described contains 200 acres in Box Elder County.

2. At 10 a.m. on May 6, 2009, the land described in Paragraph 1 above will be opened to location and entry under the United States mining laws, subject to valid existing rights, the provisions of existing withdrawals, other segregations of record, and the requirements of applicable law. Appropriation of any of the land described in this order under the general mining laws prior to the date and time of restoration is unauthorized. Any such attempted appropriation, including attempted adverse possession under 30 U.S.C. 38 (2000), shall vest no rights against the United States. Acts required to establish a location and to initiate a right of possession are governed by State law where not in conflict with Federal law. The Bureau of Land Management will not intervene in disputes between rival locators over possessory rights since Congress has provided for such determinations in local courts.
