Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 15 / Monday, January 25, 2010 / Notices exploration and recreational offhighway vehicle use contribute to habitat decline in the absence of active management, maintenance and restorative activities. • The distribution and abundance of traditional/edible, medicinal plants is declining. There is a continued decrease in pinion tree vigor and pine nut production as stand densities increase. • The unresolved eligibility status and ongoing degradation of the National Historic Pony Express Trail which bisects the 3-Bars Project Area, needs to be considered and mitigated appropriately in the EIS. These and other areas of prehistoric and historic use have not been fully recorded or analyzed within the project area. The BLM will use the NEPA commenting process to satisfy the public involvement requirements for Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470f) as provided for in 36 CFR 800.2(d)(3).

These lands were to be withdrawn on behalf of the proposed expansion of the U. S. Marine Corps’ Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms. The Navy has requested that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) remove approximately 33,488 acres of public lands from its application. The initial application was for the transfer of jurisdiction and the withdrawal of approximately 365,906 acres of public land and approximately 507 acres of Federal subsurface mineral estate from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including surface entry, mining, mineral leasing, and the Materials Act of 1947. This notice terminates the temporary two-year segregation from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the public land laws, including the mining laws, and the operation of the mineral leasing laws and the Materials Act of 1947 of the public lands and mineral estate described below. In addition, the initial application provisionally identified the surface estate of 507 acres of federallyowned mineral estate and the surface and mineral estates of approximately 72,186 acres of non-federally owned property in the proposed withdrawal area. If these acres were ever acquired by or returned to the United States by any means, they were also to be included in the proposed withdrawal and subject to the temporary segregation authorized by the initial notice. The Navy has requested that the BLM remove surface and mineral estates of approximately 28,871 acres of the nonfederally owned property. DATES: Effective Date: January 25, 2010.

Notice of Partial Cancellation of Proposed Withdrawal; California

AGENCY: Bureau of Land Management, Interior.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The U.S. Department of the Navy (Navy) has requested partial 
cancellation of its application of August 13, 2008, which requested the 
Secretary of the Interior to process a proposed legislative withdrawal 
and reservation of public lands and public mineral estate for its use. 
These lands were to be withdrawn on behalf of the proposed expansion of 
the U. S. Marine Corps' Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms. 
The Navy has requested that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) remove 
approximately 33,488 acres of public lands from its application. The 
initial application was for the transfer of jurisdiction and the 
withdrawal of approximately 365,906 acres of public land and 
approximately 507 acres of Federal subsurface mineral estate from all 
forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including surface 
entry, mining, mineral leasing, and the Materials Act of 1947. This 
notice terminates the temporary two-year segregation from settlement, 
sale, location, or entry under the public land laws, including the 
mining laws, and the operation of the mineral leasing laws and the 
Materials Act of 1947 of the public lands and mineral estate described 
below. In addition, the initial application provisionally identified 
the surface estate of 507 acres of federally-owned mineral estate and 
the surface and mineral estates of approximately 72,186 acres of non-
federally owned property in the proposed withdrawal area. If these 
acres were ever acquired by or returned to the United States by any 
means, they were also to be included in the proposed withdrawal and 
subject to the temporary segregation authorized by the initial notice. 
The Navy has requested that the BLM remove surface and mineral estates 
of approximately 28,871 acres of the non-federally owned property.
