The BLM is currently considering disposal of public lands in Grant County, New Mexico, and the exact acreage and legal descriptions will be determined by a Cadastral survey. The public lands proposed for disposal are currently identified for retention in Federal ownership in the 1993 Mimbres RMP. Therefore, the RMP must be amended to identify the public lands as suitable for exchange and/or sale. These public lands are a portion of and within the following areas: New Mexico Principal Meridian T. 17 S., R. 12 W., Secs. 3, 4, 9, 10, 15, 16, 20, 24 and 31. T. 17 S., R. 11 W., Secs. 19 and 20.

The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, including alternatives, and guide the planning process. Preliminary issues for the planning area have been identified by the BLM personnel, other agencies, and in meetings with individuals and user groups. These issues are: 1. Should public lands adjacent to the Gila National Forest be identified for disposal? If so, which public lands? 2. What potential impacts would this proposed action have on the Gila National Forest? 3. What effects would this proposed action have on mining in the area? Proposed planning criteria include the following: 1. The RMPA/EA process will be in compliance with the Federal Land E:\FR\FM\12DEN1.SGM 12DEN1
