Specific information requirements are not stated in the regulations, but sale agreements are made on Form 3600–9 approved by BLM. BLM estimates we process 5,400 contracts for mineral materials each year. We estimate it takes 30 minutes to complete and compile supporting documentation. The estimated total annual information collection burden is 2,700 hours. The BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will be of public record. Dated: January 2, 2008. Ted R. Hudson, Information Collection Clearance Officer. [FR Doc.
