AGENCY:

Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

This notice announces that the Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Land and Minerals Management proposes to withdraw 1,337,904 acres of public lands located within designated California Desert National Conservation Lands from mining to protect nationally significant landscapes with outstanding cultural, biological, and scientific values. This notice temporarily segregates the lands from location and entry under the United States mining laws for up to two years and provides the public with an opportunity to comment on the proposed withdrawal. In addition, this notice initiates the public scoping process for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), which will analyze and disclose impacts of the proposed withdrawal.

DATES:

Comments on the proposed withdrawal application and scoping comments on issues to be analyzed in the EIS must be received by March 28, 2017. Please clearly indicate whether comments are in regard to the withdrawal application or scoping comments on the EIS. The date(s) and location(s) of meetings related to the proposed withdrawal and scoping meetings for the EIS will be announced at least 30 days in advance of the meeting through local media, newspapers, the Federal Register, and the BLM Web site at: http://www.blm.gov/​california/​DRECP. In order to be included in the EIS, all comments must be received prior to the close of the 90-day scoping period. Additional opportunities for public participation will be available following publication of the draft EIS.

ADDRESSES:

Written comments should be sent to the BLM-California State Director, 2800 Cottage Way, Rm W-1623, Sacramento, CA 95825 or electronically to drecp_cdncl_withdrawal@blm.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) petitioned the Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Land and Minerals Management to withdraw 1,337,904 million acres of California Desert National Conservation Lands from location and entry under the United States mining laws for a period of 20 years, subject to valid existing rights. All of the lands (unless otherwise subject to an existing withdrawal) will remain open to the public land laws, leasing under the mineral and geothermal leasing laws, and disposal under the mineral material sales laws. The lands are located in the California Desert Conservation Area. Copies of the maps entitled “DRECP-California Desert National Conservation Lands Proposed Withdrawal” depicting the lands proposed for withdrawal are posted on the BLM Web site at http://www.blm.gov/​california/​DRECP.html and are also available from the following BLM offices:

  • BLM California State Office, 2800 Cottage Way, Suite W-1623, Sacramento, CA 95825;

The Eastern Slopes-West Desert area of the California Desert National Conservation Lands described aggregates 235,604 acres in Kern and Inyo Counties.

The total areas described aggregate 1,337,904 acres in the State of California and the counties listed above, and consist of a subset of the designated California Desert National Conservation Lands.

The Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Land and Minerals Management has approved the BLM's petition. This action therefore, constitutes a withdrawal proposal of the Secretary of the Interior (43 CFR 2310.1-3(e)).

The purpose of the proposed withdrawal is to protect nationally significant landscapes with outstanding cultural, biological, and scientific values from adverse effects of locatable mineral exploration and mining.

The use of a right-of-way, interagency or cooperative agreement, or surface management by the BLM under 43 CFR 3715 or 43 CFR 3809 regulations do not adequately constrain nondiscretionary uses, which could result in the loss of nationally significant values for which the California Desert National Conservation Lands were designated.

Alternative sites for withdrawal from location and entry under the United States mining laws exist on approximately 1.6 million acres of California Desert National Conservation Lands. These California Desert National Conservation Lands are not being proposed for withdrawal at this time because their values are not as sensitive and therefore would not benefit from a withdrawal to the same degree as the proposed 1,337,904 acres. A future phase 2 withdrawal proposal may include all or a portion of the approximately 1.6 million remaining acres of California Desert National Conservation Lands.

No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the proposed withdrawal.

Records relating to the application may be examined by contacting the BLM offices listed above.

For a period until March 28, 2017, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their views in writing to the BLM-California State Director, 2800 Cottage Way, Rm 1623, Sacramento, CA 95825, or electronically to drecp_cdncl_withdrawal@blm.gov.

Notice is hereby given that one or more public meetings will be held in connection with the proposed withdrawal. A notice of the time and place of these public meetings will be published in the Federal Register and a local newspaper at least 30 days before the scheduled date of the meeting.

All comments received, within the prescribed timeframe, will be considered before any final action is taken on the withdrawal application.

This notice also opens a 90-day public scoping period for the EIS. The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives in the EIS. At present, the BLM has identified the following preliminary issues for analysis: Air quality, climate, Native American resources, cultural resources, mineral resources, recreation, socio-economic conditions, soil resources, special status species, vegetation resources, visual resources, water resources, and fish and wildlife resources.

Because of the nature of a withdrawal of public lands from location and entry under the United States mining laws, Start Printed Page 95755mitigation of its effects is not likely to be an issue requiring detailed analysis. However, consistent with Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (40 CFR 1502.14), the BLM will consider whether to and what kind of mitigation measures may be appropriate to address the reasonably foreseeable impacts to resources from the approval of this proposed withdrawal.

The BLM will use the NEPA scoping process to help fulfill the public involvement requirements under the National Historic Preservation Act (54 U.S.C. 306108) as provided in 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). The information about historic and cultural resources within the area potentially affected by the proposed action will assist the BLM in identifying and evaluating impacts to such resources.

The BLM will consult with tribes on a government-to-government basis in accordance with Executive Order 13175 and other policies. Tribal concerns, including impacts to Indian trust assets and potential impacts to cultural resources, will be given due consideration. Federal, State, and local agencies, along with tribes and other stakeholders that may be interested in or affected by the proposed withdrawal, are invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may request or be requested by the BLM to participate in the development of the EIS as a cooperating agency.

Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM California State Office at the address noted above, during regular business hours Monday through Friday, except Federal 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.

For a period until December 28, 2018, the lands described in this notice will be segregated from location and entry under the United States mining laws, subject to valid existing rights, unless the application/proposal is denied or canceled or the proposed withdrawal is approved prior to that date. Licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or other discretionary land use authorizations may be allowed during the temporary segregative period, but only with approval of the authorized officer of the BLM.

The application will be processed in accordance with the regulations set forth in 43 CFR part 2300.
