The lands we surveyed are:

Principal Meridian, Montana

T. 9 N., R. 20 W.

The plat, in six sheets, representing the dependent resurvey of a portion of the north boundary and a portion of the subdivisional lines, the subdivision of sections 2, 3, 10, 11, 14, and 15, and the survey of portions of the easterly and westerly rights-of-way of the Montana Rail Link Railroad, through sections 2, 11, and 14 and certain parcels in Township 9 North, Range 20 West, Principal Meridian, Montana, was accepted December 21, 2011.

We will place a copy of the plat, in six sheets, and related field notes we described in the open files. They will be available to the public as a matter of information. If the BLM receives a protest against this survey, as shown on this plat, in six sheets, prior to the date of the official filing, we will stay the filing pending our consideration of the protest. We will not officially file this plat, in six sheets, until the day after we have accepted or dismissed all protests and they have become final, including decisions or appeals.
