This decision will allow Jag Energy LLC to obtain a Kentucky surface coal mining and reclamation permit for the road in question and to use the road to access and haul coal from a surface mine located on adjacent private lands. DATES: Effective Date: November 9, 2009, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Joseph L. Blackburn, Director, Lexington Field Office, 2675 Regency Road, Lexington, Kentucky 40503.

What Legal Requirements Apply to This Request? III. What Information is Available Relevant to the Basis for the Request? IV. How We Processed the Request. V. How We Made Our Decision. VI. What Public Comments Were Received? VII. How Can I Appeal the Determination? VIII. Where Are the Records of This Determination Available? I. What Is the Nature of the VER Determination Request? On October 21, 2008, Mr. John Begley II submitted a request for a determination of VER on behalf of Mr. William T. Gilbert of Jag Energy LLC. Jag Energy LLC applied for a permit (Application #866–0264) to conduct surface coal mining operations on privately owned land in Bear Branch, Leslie County, Kentucky. The property to be mined is adjacent to the Daniel Boone National Forest. William T. Gilbert is seeking a determination that Jag Energy LLC has VER under paragraph (c)(1) of the definition of VER in 30 CFR 761.5 to use an existing road across Federal lands within the Daniel Boone National Forest as an access and haul road for the proposed mine. No other surface coal mining operations would be conducted on Federal lands within the Daniel Boone National Forest as part of this mine. On December 16, 2008, we published a notice in the Federal Register (73 FR 76382) in which we provided an opportunity for the public to comment on the request for a determination of VER to use an existing Forest Service road as a coal mine access and haul road across Federal lands within the boundaries of the Daniel Boone National Forest in Leslie County, Kentucky. The comment period closed on January 15, 2009. We received no comments. PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57699 II. What Legal Requirements Apply to This Request? Section 522(e)(2) of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (SMCRA or the Act), 30 U.S.C. 1272(e)(2), prohibits surface coal mining operations on Federal lands within the boundaries of any national forest, with two exceptions. The first exception pertains to surface operations and impacts incidental to an underground coal mine. The second relates to surface operations on lands within national forests west of the 100th meridian. Neither of those exceptions applies to the request now under consideration. The introductory paragraph of section 522(e) also provides two general exceptions to the prohibitions on surface coal mining operations in that section. Those exceptions apply to operations in existence on the date of enactment of the Act (August 3, 1977) and to land for which a person has VER. SMCRA does not define VER. We subsequently adopted regulations defining VER and clarifying that, for lands that come under the protection of 30 CFR 761.11 and section 522(e) after the date of enactment of SMCRA, the applicable date is the date that the lands came under protection, not August 3, 1977. On December 17, 1999 (64 FR 70766– 70838), we adopted a revised definition of VER, established a process for submission and review of requests for VER determinations, and otherwise modified the regulations implementing section 522(e). At 30 CFR 761.16(a), we published a table clarifying which agency (OSM or the State regulatory authority) is responsible for making VER determinations and which definition (State or Federal) will apply. That table specifies that OSM is responsible for VER determinations for Federal lands within national forests and that the Federal VER definition in 30 CFR 761.5 applies to those determinations. Paragraph (c) of the Federal definition of VER contains the standards applicable to VER for roads that lie within the definition of surface coal mining operations. Jag Energy LLC is seeking a VER determination under paragraph (c)(1), which provides that a person who claims VER to use or construct a road across the surface of lands protected by 30 CFR 761.11 or section 522(e) of SMCRA must demonstrate that the ‘‘road existed when the land upon which it is located came under the protection of § 761.11 or 30 U.S.C. 1272(e), and the person has a legal right to use the road for surface coal mining operations.’’ E:\FR\FM\09NON1.SGM 09NON1
