ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the Roswell Field Office Manager, Bureau of Land Management, 2909 W.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doug Williams, Cibola National Forest, at the above address, or at (505) 346– 3869. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Forest Service has filed an application with the BLM, pursuant to Section 204 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1714, to withdraw the following described National Forest System land within the Cibola National Forest for a period of 20 years from location and entry under the United States’ mining laws (30 U.S.C. 22 et seq.), subject to valid existing rights: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with PROPOSALS New Mexico Principal Meridian Cibola National Forest T. 1 S., R. 12 E., Sec. 30, NW1⁄4SE1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4, SE1⁄4SW1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4, S1⁄2SE1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4 and N1⁄2NE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4. The area described contains 15 acres in Lincoln County, New Mexico. The purpose of the proposed withdrawal is to protect the unique recreational and historical interpretive integrity of the Red Cloud Campground, within the Cibola National Forest, and to protect a capital investment in the recreation area of approximately $750,000 in Federal funds. The use of a right-of-way, an interagency agreement, or a cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain nondiscretionary mining locations and related uses and, therefore, would not provide adequate protection of the Federal investment in the improvements located on the land. There are no suitable alternative sites which contain the unique cultural and associated natural ecosystem values. No additional water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal. For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal may VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:41 Jan 04, 2010 Jkt 220001 present their views in writing, by the date specified above, to both the BLM and the Forest Supervisor, Cibola National Forest, at the addresses stated above.

The Jewel Cave formations are unique to this area and follow the local geology. No water will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension. For a period of 90 days from the date of publication of this notice, all persons who wish to submit comments, suggestions, or objections in connection with the proposed withdrawal extension may present their views in writing to the BLM Montana State Director at the address noted above.
