This survey was executed at the request of the Chief, Branch of Realty, Lands and Renewable Energy, Bureau of Land Management, Billings, Montana, and was necessary to create Tracts of land to be transferred to the State of Montana through the indemnity selection process.

The lands we surveyed are:

Principal Meridian, Montana

Tps. 7 and 8 N., R. 47 E.

The plat, in two sheets, representing the dependent resurvey of Tract O, Tract Z, and a portion of Tract N (Tps. 7 and 8 N., R. 47 E.), and the subdivision of Tract O and Tract Z into Tract CC, Tract DD, Tract EE, and Tract FF, Township 7 North, Range 47 East, Principal Meridian, Montana, was accepted March 17, 2016.

We will place a copy of the plat, in two sheets, 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 two 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 two sheets, until the day after we have accepted or dismissed all protests and they have become final, including decisions or appeals. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personally identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personally identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personally identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
