    The area described contains 500 acres in Grand County.

    The purpose of the proposed land transfer is to protect public 
health and safety by permanently transferring the land to the DOE to be

withdrawal created by Public Land Order No. 7649 and is therefore 
currently closed to mining and mineral leasing.
    The oil and gas portion of the mineral estate would be reserved to

United States mining laws, other mineral or geothermal leasing, and 
mineral material sales.
    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 action may present their
