The lessees requested reinstatement after the lease automatically terminated for untimely payment of rent. The lessees agree to the new lease terms for rentals and royalties of $10 per acre, or fraction thereof, per year, and 162/3 percent, respectively. The lessees paid the required $500 administrative fee for lease reinstatement and the $151 cost of publishing this notice. The lessees met the requirements for reinstatement of the lease per Sec. 31(d) and (e) of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920 (30 U.S.C. 188). The BLM considered the impacts of reinstatement of the lease in Environmental Assessment DOI-BLM-CO-F020-2017-0041-EA and issued a Finding of No Significant Impact. The BLM proposes to reinstate the lease effective December 1, 2014, under amended lease terms and the increased rental and royalty rates described above.
