We are soliciting comments on the following: (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. Title: Free Use Application and Permit (Vegetative or Mineral Materials) (43 CFR parts 3620 and 5510). OMB Control Number: 1004–0001. Abstract: The BLM uses Form 5510– 1, Free Use Application and Permit (Vegetative or Mineral Material), under 43 CFR part 5510 to collect this information. The PL–167, Surface Resources Act of July 23, 1955, gives the Secretary the discretion to permit the free use of vegetative or mineral materials for use other than commercial or industrial purposes or resale. The Secretary of the Interior may also permit mining claimants the free use of vegetative or mineral materials. BLM uses the information provided by the applicant(s) to: (1) Maintain an inventory of vegetative and mineral information; and (2) Adjudicate your rights to vegetative and mineral resources. An applicant must file an application for a permit before removing any vegetative or mineral resources from the public lands.

See 30 CFR 206.174(a)(4)(ii) (2005). If additional royalties are due based on a published major portion price, the lessee must submit an amended Form MMS–2014, Report of Sales and Royalty Remittance, to MMS by the due date. If additional royalties are not paid by the due date, late payment interest, under 30 CFR 218.54 (2005), will accrue from the due date until payment is made, and an amended Form MMS–2014 is received. The table below lists the major portion prices for all designated areas not associated with an index zone. The due date is 60 days after the publication date of this notice.
