SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (A) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the information collection burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we use; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the information collection burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 30 U.S.C. 28f (Pub. L. 105–277), and the regulations under 43 CFR 3830–3833, 3840–3843, and 3850–3852 authorize BLM to collect information from owners of unpatented claims, mill sites and tunnel sites to manage the general mining law activities on public lands. BLM uses Form 3830–2 (Maintenance Fee Waiver) to collect the information to waive the $100 annual maintenance fee that owners of unpatented mining claims, mill sites, and tunnel sites must pay. The owners of unpatented mining claims, mill sites, and tunnel sites must submit the following information to BLM: (1) The mining claim names and BLM serial numbers; (2) A declaration that the owners own or have interest in 10 or fewer claims or sites; PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (3) A declaration of compliance with the assessment work requirements; (4) The names and addresses of all owners of the claims and sites; and (5) The owners’/agents’ signatures. BLM uses Form 3830–3 (Notice of Intent to Locate A Lode or Placer Mining Claim(s) and/or A Tunnel Site(s) on Lands Patented Under the Stock Raising Homestead Act of 1916, as amended) to collect information on an applicant who files a notice of intent to locate or explore for a mining claim or tunnel site. The applicant must submit the following information to BLM: (1) The name and mailing address of the applicant filing the notice of intent to locate or explore for a mining claim or tunnel site; (2) A legal land description of the lands which the notice of intent will apply; (3) A brief description of the proposed mineral activities; (4) A map and legal land description of lands subject top mineral exploration; (5) The name, address, and phone number of the person managing the activities; and (6) The dates the activities will take place. BLM uses the information on recording claims, annual assessment work, notice of intent to hold, and transfer of interest to: (1) Determine the number and location of unpatented mining claims, mill sites and tunnel sites located on Federal lands to assist in the surface management of these lands and any minerals found there; (2) Remove any cloud on the title to those lands due to abandoned mining claims; (3) Provide information as to the location of active claims; and (4) Keep informed on transfers of interest and ownership. Without this information, BLM could not protect the rights of surface and mineral owners. Also, the Government’s ability to locate, control, and manage surface disturbance would be compromised. Based upon BLM experience, the public reporting information collection burden takes eight minutes per response. The respondents are owners of unpatented mining claims, mill sites, and tunnel sites located on public lands and individuals or organizations who seek to explore for or locate a mining claim. The estimated number of responses per year is 236,852 and the total annual burden is 31,585 hours. BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. E:\FR\FM\21APN1.SGM 21APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 76 / Thursday, April 21, 2005 / Notices Dated: April 15, 2005.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 
60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of 
information to solicit comments on:
    (A) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information 
will have practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the information collection 
burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we 
use;

information collected; and
    (d) Ways to minimize the information collection burden on those who 
are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic,

of information technology.
    The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 30 U.S.C. 28f 
(Pub. L. 105-277), and the regulations under 43 CFR 3830-3833, 3840-
3843, and 3850-3852 authorize BLM to collect information from owners of 
unpatented claims, mill sites and tunnel sites to manage the general 
mining law activities on public lands.
    BLM uses Form 3830-2 (Maintenance Fee Waiver) to collect the 
information to waive the $100 annual maintenance fee that owners of 
unpatented mining claims, mill sites, and tunnel sites must pay. The 
owners of unpatented mining claims, mill sites, and tunnel sites must 
submit the following information to BLM:
    (1) The mining claim names and BLM serial numbers;
    (2) A declaration that the owners own or have interest in 10 or

    (3) A declaration of compliance with the assessment work 
requirements;
    (4) The names and addresses of all owners of the claims and sites; 
and
    (5) The owners'/agents' signatures.
    BLM uses Form 3830-3 (Notice of Intent to Locate A Lode or Placer 
Mining Claim(s) and/or A Tunnel Site(s) on Lands Patented Under the 
Stock Raising Homestead Act of 1916, as amended) to collect information 
on an applicant who files a notice of intent to locate or explore for a 
mining claim or tunnel site. The applicant must submit the following 
information to BLM:
    (1) The name and mailing address of the applicant filing the notice 
of intent to locate or explore for a mining claim or tunnel site;
    (2) A legal land description of the lands which the notice of 
intent will apply;

    (4) A map and legal land description of lands subject top mineral 
exploration;
    (5) The name, address, and phone number of the person managing the 
activities; and
    (6) The dates the activities will take place.
    BLM uses the information on recording claims, annual assessment 
work, notice of intent to hold, and transfer of interest to:
    (1) Determine the number and location of unpatented mining claims, 
mill sites and tunnel sites located on Federal lands to assist in the 
surface management of these lands and any minerals found there;
    (2) Remove any cloud on the title to those lands due to abandoned 
mining claims;
    (3) Provide information as to the location of active claims; and
    (4) Keep informed on transfers of interest and ownership.
    Without this information, BLM could not protect the rights of 
surface and mineral owners. Also, the Government's ability to locate, 
control, and manage surface disturbance would be compromised.
    Based upon BLM experience, the public reporting information 
collection burden takes eight minutes per response. The respondents are

located on public lands and individuals or organizations who seek to 
explore for or locate a mining claim. The estimated number of responses
