ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79017 The Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Land and Minerals Management proposes to extend the duration of Public Land Order (PLO) No. 6845 for an additional 20-year term. PLO No. 6845 withdrew 200 acres of public land from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the general land laws, including the United States mining laws, to protect the archaeological values at the Arroyo del Tajo Pictograph Site. This notice gives an opportunity to comment on the proposed action and request a public meeting. DATES: Comments and requests for a public meeting must be received by March 17, 2011. ADDRESSES: Comments and meeting requests should be sent to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Socorro Field Office Field Manager, 901 S. Hwy 85, Socorro, New Mexico 87801. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ann D. Sullivan, BLM Socorro Field Office, 901 S. Hwy 85, Socorro, New Mexico 87801, or at 575–835–0412. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The withdrawal created by PLO No. 6845 (56 FR 14865 (1991)) will expire April 11, 2011, unless extended. PLO No. 6845 is incorporated herein by reference. The BLM has filed a petition/application to extend PLO No. 6845 for an additional 20-year term. The withdrawal was made to protect the archaeological values at the Arroyo del Tajo Pictograph Site and surrounding area from deterioration, for research purposes, and for interpretation as described in the PLO. The area aggregates 200 acres in Socorro County, New Mexico. The use of a right-of-way, interagency, or cooperative agreement would not adequately constrain nondiscretionary uses which could result in the permanent loss of significant values and irreplaceable cultural resources. No water rights would be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal extension. There are no suitable alternative sites available since the lands described herein have specific archaeological values that are not found in any nearby areas. Records relating to the application may be examined by contacting Ann D. Sullivan or Danita Burns of the BLM Socorro Field Office at the above address or phone number. 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 Socorro Field Office Field SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1
