AGENCY: SUMMARY: The surface owner of the lands described in this notice, aggregating approximately 160 acres, has filed an application for the purchase of the Federally-owned mineral interests in the lands.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The surface owner of the following described lands has filed an application pursuant to section 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1719(b), for the purchase and conveyance of the Federally-owned mineral interest in the following described lands: Gila and Salt River Base and Meridian, Yavapai County, Arizona T. 1 S., R. 3 W., Sec. 9, SW1⁄4NE1⁄4, SE1⁄4NW1⁄4, NE1⁄4SW1⁄4, NW1⁄4SE1⁄4.

Written comments concerning the application must be received no later than the date specified above in this notice. The purpose for a purchase and conveyance is to allow consolidation of surface and subsurface minerals ownership where (1) there are no known mineral values or (2) in those instances where the Federal mineral interest reservation interferes with or precludes appropriate nonmineral development and such development is a more beneficial use of the land than the mineral development. On July 15, 2008 the mineral interests owned by the United States in the above described lands will be segregated to the extent that they will not be subject to appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws. The segregative effect shall terminate upon issuance of a patent or deed of such mineral interest; upon final rejection of the mineral conveyance application; or July 15, 2010, whichever occurs first.

Congress charged the Secretary with acquisition of lands ‘‘ * * * for the purpose of establishing a national historic site commemorating the completion of the first transcontinental railroad across the United States * * *’’ The enabling legislation also states that ‘‘the National Park Service * * * shall administer, protect, and develop such historic site, subject to the provisions of the Act entitled ‘An Act to establish a National Park Service, and for other purposes’ ’’ approved August 25, 1916 (39 Stat. 525), as amended and supplemented, and the Act entitled ‘‘An Act to provide for the preservation of historic American sites buildings, objects, and antiquities of national significance, and for other purposes,’’ approved August 21, 1935 (49 Stat. 666), as amended. The general management plan will prescribe the resource conditions and visitor experiences that are to be achieved and maintained in the national historic site over the next approximately 20 years. The clarification of what must be achieved according to law and policy will be based on review of the park’s purpose, significance, special mandates, and the body of law and policies directing the park management. Management decisions to be made where law, policy, or regulations do not provide clear guidance or limits will be based on the purposes of the park; the range of public expectations and concerns; resource analysis; an evaluation of the natural, cultural, and social impacts of alternative courses of action; and consideration of long-term E:\FR\FM\15JYN1.SGM 15JYN1
