PLO No. 6664 withdrew 840 acres of public lands in Carbon County, Montana, from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the general land laws, including the United States mining laws to protect the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Petroglyph Canyon and Weatherman Draw archeological sites. This notice also gives an opportunity to comment on the proposed action and to request a public meeting. The lands have been and will remain open to mineral leasing. DATES: Comments and requests for a public meeting must be received by January 22, 2008. ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the BLM Billings Field Office Manager, 5001 Southgate Drive, Billings, Montana 59101–4669. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tom Carroll, BLM, Billings Field Office, (406) 896–5242, or at the above address, or Sandra Ward, BLM, Montana State Office, (406) 896–5052. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The withdrawal created by PLO No. 6664 (53 FR 7186–7) will expire March 6, 2008, unless extended. The Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management has approved the BLM PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 petition to file an application to extend PLO No. 6664 for an additional 2-year period. The withdrawal was made to protect the Petroglyph Canyon and Weatherman Draw archeological sites on public lands described as follows: Principal Meridian, Montana, (Weatherman Draw) T. 8 S., R. 24 E., Sec. 20, S1⁄2SE1⁄4 and SE1⁄4SW1⁄4; Sec. 29, E1⁄2 and E1⁄2W1⁄2. (Petroglyph Canyon) T. 9 S., R. 26 E., Sec. 35, lots 2, 3, 6, 7, SW1⁄4NE1⁄4 and SE1⁄4NW1⁄4. The areas described aggregate 840 acres in Carbon County. The purpose of the proposed extension is to continue the withdrawal created by PLO No. 6664 for an additional 20-year term to protect the archeological sites at Petroglyph Canyon and Weatherman Draw. As extended, the withdrawal would not alter the applicability of those public land laws governing the use of lands under lease, license, or permit or governing the disposal of the mineral or vegetative resources other than under the mining laws. The use of a right-of-way or interagency or cooperative agreement would not adequately protect the cultural resources in these areas. There are no suitable alternative sites available. Significant cultural resources are located at the Petroglyph Canyon and Weatherman Draw sites in the above-described public land. Water will not be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal. For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal extension may present their views in writing to the BLM Billings Field Office at the address noted above. Comments, including names and street addresses of respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Billings Field Office at the address noted above during regular business hours 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comments, be advised that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1
