Duchesne and Utah Counties.

    2. At 10 a.m. on August 28, 2006, the lands described in Paragraph 
1(a) shall be opened to such forms of disposition as may by law be 
authorized on National Forest System lands, including location and 
entry under the United States mining laws, subject to valid existing 
rights, the provisions of existing withdrawals, other segregations of 
record, and the requirements of applicable law. Appropriation of any of 
the lands described in Paragraph 1(a) under the general mining laws 
prior to the date and time of restoration is unauthorized. Any such 
attempted appropriation, including attempted adverse possession under 
30 U.S.C. 38 (2000), shall vest no rights against the United States. 
Acts required to establish a location and to initiate a right of 
possession are governed by State law where not in conflict with Federal 
law. The Bureau of Land Management will not intervene in disputes 
between rival locators over possessory rights since Congress has 
provided for such determinations in local courts.

    Dated: July 3, 2006.
R. Thomas Weimer,
Assistant Secretary of the Interior.
