ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) filed an application to extend the duration of Public Land Order (PLO) No. 6849 for an additional 20-year term. PLO No. 6849 withdrew approximately 457,800 acres of Federal lands, known as the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge, from mineral entry and location under the United States mining laws to protect the wildlife habitat and unique resource values of the refuge lands. In addition, this notice corrects errors made in describing unsurveyed lands in Township 46 North, Range 27 East, and in the calculation of total acreage withdrawn by PLO No. 6849. This notice gives an opportunity for the public to comment on the proposed withdrawal extension and announces the date, time, and location of a public meeting.

DATES:

For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may do so in writing until March 1, 2011. The public will also be notified of the meeting date by announcement in a local newspaper and on the BLM Web site: http://www.blm.gov/​nv/​st/​en/​fo/​wfo.html at least 30 days prior to the scheduled date of the meeting.

ADDRESSES:

Comments should be mailed to: Humboldt River Field Manager, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), 5100 E. Winnemucca Blvd., Winnemucca, NV 89445, or e-mailed to: Michael_Truden@blm.gov.

The areas described aggregate approximately 457,800 acres in Washoe and Humboldt Counties. The legal descriptions of the unsurveyed lands are based on what normal survey subdivision units would be when surveyed. PLO No. 6849, when published, withdrew 445,766 acres but was subsequently corrected by Federal Register notice 56 FR 24119, and PLO Nos. 6849 and 6907. The corrections to the legal descriptions and acreage calculations result in the recognition of an additional 12,034 acres that lie within the existing withdrawal boundary but that were omitted due to protraction errors.

This notice does not alter or extinguish or otherwise affect the existing mineral withdrawal created by PLO No. 6849.

The lands withdrawn by PLO No. 6849 consist of high desert habitat. The purpose of the withdrawal extension is to continue to conserve and protect the sagebrush-steppe landscape for optimum populations of native plants and wildlife including large wintering herds of pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, pygmy rabbits, and greater sage-grouse.

The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative agreement, would not provide adequate protection for the wildlife habitat and unique resource values within the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge.

No additional water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension.

There are no suitable alternative sites since the lands described herein contain the natural and biological resources of interest for protection.

Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the address stated above, during regular business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Start Printed Page 74746Monday through Friday, except holidays. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. If you wish to withhold your name or address from public review or from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comments. Such requests will be honored to the extent allowed by law. All submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses, will be made available for public inspection in their entirety.

Notice is hereby given that a public meeting in connection with the proposed withdrawal extension will be held on January 18, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m at the BLM Winnemucca District Office, located at the address stated above. A notice of the time and place will also be published in at least one newspaper of local jurisdiction no less than 30 days before the scheduled meeting date. Interested parties may make oral statements and may file written statements at the meeting. All statements received will be considered before any recommendation concerning the proposed extension is submitted to the Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management for final action.

The application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR 2310.4.
