A map showing the parcel is available on the BLM Web site, https://www.blm.gov/​programs/​lands-and-realty/​regional-information/​idaho.

Basis of Bearings: Per Record of Survey filed on September 29, 2015, for the record under Instrument No. 2517339000 in the Office of the Recorder of Kootenai County, Idaho, at the request of Welch Comer and Associates, Inc.

The above-described land in section 9 is claimed by the City of Coeur d'Alene on the basis that the land was patented to the Northern Pacific Railroad Company on December 22, 1894, under the Act of July 2, 1864 (13 Stat. 356), and that the City of Coeur d'Alene is a successor in interest to the Northern Pacific Railroad Company in the described portion of section 9.

A Recordable Disclaimer of Interest is necessary because there is a discrepancy in the chain of title, which clouds the title to the above-described lands. The Kootenai County deed records at Volume C, page 361, indicate that on August 24, 1887, Northern Pacific Railroad Company conveyed title to lot 4 of Section 9, T. 50 N., R. 4 W. to Robert W. Cochran. However, as stated above, the Northern Pacific Railroad Company did not receive a patent to this land until 1894. A disclaimer of the interest in the surface estate, as reflected in the 1894 patent, makes clear that the U.S. does not have a claim to such lands except for the mineral rights specifically reserved in that patent. Issuance of a recordable disclaimer will remove any cloud on the title to the land.

Comments, including names and street addresses of commenters, will be available for public review at the BLM Idaho State Office (see ADDRESSES 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.

If no valid objection is received, a Disclaimer of Interest may be approved, stating that the United States has no valid interest in the above-described land other than the reserved mineral interests in the above-described portion of section 9.
