The following described public land in Park County, Wyoming, has been examined and found suitable for sale under the authority of Section 203 of FLPMA, as amended:

Sixth Principle Meridian

T. 55 N, R. 100 W,

Sec. 10, lot 4.

The areas described contains 1.31 acres in Park County, Wyoming.

The sale is in conformance with the BLM Cody Resource Management Plan, which identifies this parcel of public land as suitable for disposal on page 105 and management action 6011, approved on September 18, 2015. The parcel is not needed for any other Federal purpose. The regulations at 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a) permit the BLM to make direct sales of public lands when a competitive sale is not appropriate and the public interest would be best served by a direct sale. A competitive sale is not appropriate because these lands contain improvements owned by the Jeanne S. Moeller Trust, rendering the land not usable by the public. The public interest would be served by resolving this inadvertent unauthorized use and receiving the fair market value for the lands.

On August 30, 2018, the above-described lands will be segregated from appropriation under the public lands laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provision of the FLPMA. Until completion of the sale action, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the public land, except applications for the amendment of previously-filed, right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The temporary segregative effect will terminate upon the issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or on July 16, 2020, unless extended by the BLM Wyoming State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date.

In addition, this Notice will publish once each week for three weeks in the Powell Tribune newspaper.

The following terms, conditions, and reservations will appear on the conveyance document for the sale parcel:

1. A right-of-way is reserved for ditches or canals constructed by the authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945);

2. A reservation of all minerals to the United States, and the right to prospect for, mine, and remove such minerals under applicable law and such regulations as established by the Start Printed Page 32891Secretary of the Interior, together with all necessary access and exit rights.
