SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The lessee requested reinstatement after the lease automatically terminated for untimely payment of rent. The lessee agrees to the new lease terms for rentals and royalties of $10 per acre, or fraction thereof, per year, and 16 2/3 percent, respectively. The lessee paid the required $500 administrative fee for lease reinstatement and the $151 cost of publishing this notice. The lessee 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, and issued a Finding of No Significant Impact.
