are no known mineral values in the land; or (2) where continued Federal 
ownership of the mineral interests interferes with or precludes 
appropriate non-mineral development and such development is a more 
beneficial use of the land than mineral development.
    In accordance with section 209(b) of the 1976 Act, on May 25, 2006, 
an application was filed for the sale and conveyance of the federally 
owned mineral interest in the above-described tract of land.

issuance of a patent or other document of conveyance as to such mineral 
interests; (ii) upon final rejection of the application; or (iii) two 
years from the date of filing the application, whichever occurs first.
