The BLM has filed a petition/ VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:27 Jul 01, 2010 Jkt 220001 application to extend the withdrawal established by PLO No. 6818 for an additional 20-year term.

No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension.

Sec. 9, SW1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4SW1⁄4. The area described contains 2.5 acres, more or less. This parcel of public land is proposed for competitive auction at not less than the appraised FMV of $6,900. Maps delineating the proposed sale parcel will be available for public review at the following Web site: http://www.blm.gov/ nv/ (click on the Ely District), and at the BLM Ely District Office, until August 16, 2010. Consistent with Section 203 of FLPMA, the tract of public lands may be sold as a result of approved land use planning if the sale of the tract meets the disposal criteria. The sale is in conformance with the Ely District Record of Decision and Resource Management Plan (RMP), approved in August 2008. The BLM has determined that the proposed action conforms to the RMP (LR–11) under the authority of FLPMA. The lands are also identified as suitable for disposal and are in compliance with Public Law 109–432, the Tax Relief and Health Care Act of 2006. No significant resource values will be affected by this disposal. This parcel is not required for any Federal purposes. These public lands have been examined and found suitable for disposal using competitive sale procedures at 43 CFR 2711–3–1. The use of competitive sale procedures is consistent with 43 CFR 2710.0– 6(c)(3)(i), which states ‘‘this title is the general procedure for sales of public lands and may be used where there would be a number of interested parties bidding for the lands and (A) wherever in the judgment of the authorized officer the lands are accessible and usable regardless of adjoining land ownership.’’ If the BLM decides to proceed with the sale, a public auction will be scheduled to be held at the BLM Ely District Office, 702 North Industrial Way, Ely, Nevada. This oral auction will be a day event. Bidding on the subject parcel will begin at the established FMV. At the conclusion of the auction, the person declared to have entered the highest qualifying oral bid shall submit a bid deposit of not less than 20 percent of the successful high bid amount. Failure to submit the deposit will result in forfeiture of the sale offer. If the high bidder is unable to consummate the transaction, the second-highest bidder’s bid may then be considered for award. E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1
