The parcel of public land contains 30 acres. The 1981 Bruneau Management Framework Plan identified the public land as available for disposal. On February 24, 2005 the parcel will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA). The segregative effect will end upon issuance of patent or November 21, 2005, whichever occurs first. The public land will not be offered for sale until April 25, 2005 at the appraised fair market value of $9,000. The patent, when issued, will contain a reservation to the United States for ditches and canals. This land is being offered by direct sale to Owyhee County pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3–3, to provide a needed buffer around the existing Rimrock Landfill. It has been determined that the subject parcel contains no known mineral values; therefore, mineral interests will be conveyed simultaneously under the authority of Section 209 of FLPMA.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: Notice is given that, pursuant to section 209b of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1719(b)), Mr. Tim Weikert has applied to purchase the mineral estate described as follows: Principal Meridian, Montana T. 7 S., R. 3 W., Sec. 19, W1⁄2NE1⁄4NE1⁄4.

The purpose is to allow consolidation of surface and subsurface mineral ownership where there are no known mineral values or in those instances where the United States mineral reservation interferes with or precludes appropriate non-mineral development and such development is a more beneficial use of the land than the mineral development. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tami Lorenz, Legal Instruments Examiner, BLM Montana State Office, P.O. Box 36800, Billings, Montana 59107–6800, 406–896–5053.
