SUMMARY: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) proposes to offer two parcels of public land totaling about 2.65 acres by direct, non-competitive sale to adjacent property owners. The sale will be subject to the applicable provisions of Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA), 43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719, respectively, and BLM land sale and mineral conveyance regulations at 43 CFR 2710 and 2720. DATES: Interested parties may submit written comments regarding the proposed sale of these public lands until July 13, 2009. The sale will not be before sixty days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. ADDRESSES: Mail written comments to BLM Field Manager, Mount Lewis Field Office, Battle Mountain District, 50 Bastain Road, Battle Mountain, NV 89820. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Chuck Lane at 775–635–6148. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The sale parcels are in the south central part of Section 19 on the southern slope of Pony Soldier Canyon adjacent to the town of Austin, Nevada and are legally described as: Mount Diablo Meridian, Nevada T. 19 N., R. 44 E., Sec. 19, lots 28 and 29. Lot 28 contains 1.82 acres more or less and Lot 29 contains 0.83 acres more or less for a total of 2.65, more or less. Lot 28 is proposed for sale to Charles Henrickson and Lynn Hendrickson, of Austin, Nevada for the Fair Market Value (FMV) of $7,000. Lot 29 is proposed for sale to Aldeen Penola and Susan Penola, of Austin, Nevada for the FMV of $5,000. An approved appraisal report has been prepared by a state certified appraiser for the purposes of establishing these FMVs. Public land cannot be sold for less than its FMV. The public land is not required for any federal purpose. This sale is in conformance with the 1986 BLM Shoshone-Eureka Resource Management Plan (RMP), approved on February 26, PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1986. The parcels meet the disposal qualification of Section 205 of the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000 (FLTFA) (43 U.S.C. 2304). The proceeds from the sale of the land will be deposited into the Federal Land Disposal Account for Nevada pursuant to FLTFA. The land meets the criteria for sale under 43 CFR 2710.0–3(a)(3) where the sale of a parcel because of its location or other characteristics is difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands and is not suitable for management by another Federal department or agency. The parcels will be offered through direct sale procedures pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3– 3. The sale of these lands also meet the criteria under 43 CFR 2711.3–3(a)(5) which allows direct sales in the case of a need to resolve inadvertent unauthorized use or occupancy of the lands. The residences of the two parties and some outlying structures have inadvertently been constructed on public land. The direct sale would not change the status quo in that no other land uses are expected for these lands. The BLM prepared an environmental assessment (EA) and provided a 30-day public comment period. No comments were received and a finding of no significant impacts (FONSI) was signed on July 9, 2008. The EA, FONSI, Environmental Site Assessment, Mineral Potential Report, and map are available for review at the Battle Mountain District Office. Terms and Conditions: Conveyance of the available mineral interests will occur simultaneously with the sale of the land. The mineral interests being offered for sale have no known mineral value in accordance with Section 209 of FLPMA. Acceptance of a sale offer will constitute an application for conveyance of those mineral interests. In conjunction with the final payment, the purchaser will be required to pay a $50 non-refundable filing fee for processing the conveyance of the mineral interests. Payment must be submitted in the form of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable in U.S. dollars to the ‘‘Department of the Interior—Bureau of Land Management.’’ The following numbered terms and conditions will appear in the conveyance document for this parcel: 1. Oil, gas, and geothermal resources on the land are reserved to the United States; permittees, licensees, and lessees retain the right to prospect for and remove those minerals retained by the United States under applicable law and any regulations that the Secretary of the E:\FR\FM\27MYN1.SGM 27MYN1
