SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The USDA Forest Service has filed an application requesting that the Secretary of the Interior extend the duration of PLO No. 6782 (55 FR 20766, (1990)), which, subject to valid existing rights, withdrew certain land in Custer County, South Dakota, from location and entry under the mining laws (30 U.S.C. Ch. 2) for an additional 20 years. The area PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 described contains 2,387.22 acres in Custer County as follows: Black Hills Meridian Black Hills National Forest T. 3 S., R. 2 E., Sec. 34, S1⁄2S1⁄2.

As extended, the withdrawal would not alter the applicability of those public land laws governing the use of National Forest System lands under lease, license, or permit or governing the disposal of the mineral or vegetative resources other than under the mining laws. The use of a right-of-way or interagency or cooperative agreement would not adequately protect this area. There are no suitable alternative sites available.
