SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The BLM and the Department of the Navy (DON) are engaged in evaluation of issues relating to the Navy's proposed training land range expansion and airspace modifications project of Naval Air Station Fallon, Fallon Range Training Complex, Nevada, pending the processing of the DON's application for withdrawal of Federal land for defense purposes under the Engle Act (Federal Register Notice 2016-20502) (81 FR 58919) and Federal Register Notice 2016-21213 (81 FR 60736). In accordance with Section 204 of the FLPMA, 43 U.S.C. 1714, and BLM regulations at 43 CFR part 2300, the BLM has filed a petition/application requesting the Secretary of the Interior to withdraw the area described below from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, for LME purposes, subject to valid existing rights, to support that evaluation. This application does not request reservation of the lands for the DON for defense purposes. The BLM's petition/application also requested the Secretary to withdraw 68,804 acres of subsurface in the Dixie Valley Training Area from the mineral leasing laws, for land management evaluation purposes, subject to valid existing rights. The BLM filed the petition/application for withdrawal from the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, for LME purposes, subject to valid existing rights in support of possible future transfer of the lands to DON jurisdiction by Congress in accordance with an application filed by the DON (see Federal Register Notice 2016-21213) (81 FR 60736). The Secretary of the Interior therefore proposes to withdraw the lands described below in “Expansion and Land Management Evaluation,” for 4 years from operation of the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, for land management purposes, subject to valid existing rights. This notice and comment will allow opportunity for the BLM to receive input from the State of Nevada, potential stakeholders, and the local community in order to adequately address potential concerns about the overall size of the withdrawal expansion and the potential impacts to existing multiple uses and resources, including but not limited to critical and other minerals, geothermal resources, livestock grazing, and recreational access.

The “Expansion and Land Management Evaluation” proposal would withdraw the following areas in Churchill, Lyon, Pershing, Mineral, and Nye Counties, Nevada, subject to valid existing rights as described below:

The areas B-16, B-17, B-20 and the Dixie Valley Training Area aggregate 769,724 acres. Portions of these lands are unsurveyed and the acres were obtained from protraction diagrams information or calculated using Geographic Information System.

The BLM's withdrawal petition/application and the records relating to the petition/application can be examined at the BLM Carson City District Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, Nevada 89701, during regular business hours (7:30 a.m., to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

A copy of the legal descriptions and the maps depicting the lands proposed withdrawal for land management evaluation purposes are available for public inspection at the following offices:

State Director, BLM Nevada State Office, 1430 Financial Boulevard, Reno, Nevada 89502

District Manager, BLM Carson City District Office, 5665 Morgan Mill Road, Carson City, Nevada 89701

For a period until August 2, 2018 all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may present their comments in writing to the persons and offices listed in the ADDRESSES section above.

All comments received will be considered before any final action is taken on the proposed withdrawal.

For the proposed 4-year withdrawal for LME purposes, the BLM is the lead agency for NEPA compliance and with this Notice invites public review of the EA. Because of the nature of a withdrawal of public lands from operation of the public land laws, including the mining laws, the mineral leasing laws, and the geothermal leasing laws, for land management evaluation purposes, subject to valid existing rights, where the purpose of the withdrawal is to maintain the status quo of the lands, mitigation of the withdrawal's effects is not likely to be an issue requiring detailed analysis. However, consistent with Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing NEPA (40 CFR 1502.14), the BLM will consider whether and what kind of mitigation measures may be appropriate to address the reasonably foreseeable impacts to resources from the approval of this proposed withdrawal for land management evaluation purposes.

You may submit comments on the EA for LME purposes in writing to the BLM using one of the methods listed in the ADDRESSES section above. To be most helpful, you should submit comments by the date specified in the DATES section above. The BLM will use this NEPA public participation process to help satisfy the public involvement requirements under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) (16 U.S.C. 470(f)) pursuant to 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). The information about historic and cultural resources within the area potentially affected by the proposed withdrawal for LME purposes will assist the BLM in identifying and evaluating impacts to such resources in the context of both NEPA and Section 106 of the NHPA.

Comments including names and street addresses of respondents will be available for public review at the BLM address noted above, during regular business hours Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personally identifiable information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personally identifiable information—may be publicly available at any time. While you can ask the BLM in your comment to withhold your personally identifiable information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.

As the public land referenced in this Notice have already been segregated as described, licenses, permits, cooperative agreements, or discretionary land use authorizations may be allowed during the segregative period, but only with the approval of the authorized officer and, as appropriate, with the concurrence of the DON.

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