The areas described aggregate 1,543.14, acres more or less, in Bear Lake County. The lands are not needed for any Federal purpose and disposal would be in the public interest. The 1988 BLM Pocatello Resource Management Plan identified these parcels of public land as suitable for disposal. Conveyance of the identified public lands will be subject to valid existing rights and encumbrances of record, including but not limited to, rights-of-way for roads and public utilities. A decision regarding the method of sale (competitive, modified competitive, or direct) along with a decision regarding conveyance of any mineral interests pursuant to Section 209 of the FLPMA will be analyzed for each parcel during processing of the proposed sale. The BLM Pocatello Field Office anticipates publication of a follow-up notice in the Federal Register detailing these specifics when they have been determined.

On December 17, 2010, the above-described lands will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the sale, the BLM will not accept land use applications affecting the identified public lands, 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 December 17, 2012, unless extended by the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date.
