The public lands have been identified as suitable for disposal in the BLM’s September 2006 Ukiah Resource Management Plan, as amended, because they are isolated from large blocks of public land and are considered to be difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the public lands. Parcels Nos. 2, 3, and 4 lack legal access, which increases the difficulty of managing them as part of the public lands. In addition, they are not needed for any Federal purpose. The BLM has completed a mineral potential report which identified oil and gas resources in Parcel No. 1 and geothermal E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 37374 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 123 / Monday, June 27, 2011 / Notices resources in Parcel Nos. 2, 3, and 4. Otherwise, there are no other mineral values in the lands. The BLM proposes to reserve oil and gas mineral interests in Parcel No. 1 and geothermal mineral interests in Parcel Nos. 2, 3, and 4 and convey all other Federal mineral interests with the sale of the lands. On June 27, 2011, the above described lands will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the sale, the BLM will no longer accept land use applications affecting the public lands, except applications for the amendment of previously filed right-of-way (ROW) applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15. The segregation will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or June 27, 2013, unless extended by the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date. Proceeds from the sale will be deposited into the Federal Land Disposal Account, pursuant to the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000.

Interested bidders are advised to obtain an Invitation For Bids (IFB) from the BLM Ukiah Field Office at the address above or by calling (707) 468–4082. Bidders must follow the instructions in the IFB to participate in the bidding process. Sealed bids must be for not less than the federally approved fair market value. Each sealed bid must include a certified check, money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of the Bureau of Land Management, for 10 percent of the amount of the bid.

If not sold, the land described in this Notice may be identified for sale later without further legal notice and may be offered for sale by sealed bid, internet auction, or oral auction. In order to determine the value, through appraisal, of the land proposed to be sold, certain extraordinary assumptions may have been made of the attributes and limitations of the lands and potential effects of local regulations and policies on potential future land uses. Through publication of this Notice, the BLM gives notice that these assumptions may not be endorsed or approved by units of local government. It is the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of all applicable local government policies, laws, and regulations that would affect the lands, including any required dedication of lands for public uses. It is also the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of existing or projected uses of nearby properties. When conveyed out of Federal ownership, the lands will be subject to any applicable reviews and approvals by the respective unit of local government for proposed future uses, and any such reviews and approvals will be the responsibility of the buyer. Any land lacking access from a public road or highway will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will be the responsibility of the buyer.

    The area described contains 120 acres, more or less, in Lake 
County.

    The public lands have been identified as suitable for disposal in 
the BLM's September 2006 Ukiah Resource Management Plan, as amended, 
because they are isolated from large blocks of public land and are 
considered to be difficult and uneconomic to manage as part of the 
public lands. Parcels Nos. 2, 3, and 4 lack legal access, which 
increases the difficulty of managing them as part of the public lands. 
In addition, they are not needed for any Federal purpose. The BLM has 
completed a mineral potential report which identified oil and gas 
resources in Parcel No. 1 and geothermal

[[Page 37374]]

resources in Parcel Nos. 2, 3, and 4. Otherwise, there are no other 
mineral values in the lands. The BLM proposes to reserve oil and gas 
mineral interests in Parcel No. 1 and geothermal mineral interests in 
Parcel Nos. 2, 3, and 4 and convey all other Federal mineral interests 
with the sale of the lands. On June 27, 2011, the above described lands 
will be segregated from all forms of appropriation under the public 
land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the 
FLPMA. Until completion of the sale, the BLM will no longer accept land 
use applications affecting the public lands, except applications for 
the amendment of previously filed right-of-way (ROW) applications or 
existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in 
accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15. The segregation will terminate upon 
issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a 
termination of the segregation, or June 27, 2013, unless extended by 
the BLM State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to 
the termination date. Proceeds from the sale will be deposited into the 
Federal Land Disposal Account, pursuant to the Federal Land Transaction 
Facilitation Act of July 25, 2000. The lands will not be sold until at 
least August 26, 2011. Any patent issued would contain the following 
terms, conditions, and reservations:
    1. A reservation of a right-of-way to the United States for ditches 
and canals constructed by authority of the United States under the Act 
of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).
    2. A reservation of all oil and gas mineral resources to the United 
States together with the right to prospect for, mine and remove such 
mineral resources under applicable law and any regulations as the 
Secretary of the Interior may prescribe, along with all necessary 
access and exit rights (Parcel No. 1).
    3. A reservation of all geothermal mineral resources to the United 
States together with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove such 
mineral resources under applicable law and any regulations as the 
Secretary of the Interior may prescribe, along with all necessary 
access and exit rights (Parcel Nos. 2, 3, and 4).
    4. Subject to such rights as Colusa and Glenn County may have under 
Revised Statute 2477 for Rail Canyon Road and County Road 401 on Parcel 
No. 1 (Colusa and Glenn County may apply for, and BLM may grant, 
permanent easements for these roads prior to conveyance).
    5. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United 
States from claims arising out of the patentee's use, occupancy, and/or 
operators of the patented lands.
    6. Additional terms and conditions that the authorized officer 
deems appropriate.
    The parcels may be subject to applications for ROWs received prior 
to publication of this Notice if processing the application would not 
adversely affect the marketability or appraised value of the land. 
Interested bidders are advised to obtain an Invitation For Bids (IFB) 
from the BLM Ukiah Field Office at the address above or by calling 
(707) 468-4082. Bidders must follow the instructions in the IFB to 
participate in the bidding process. Sealed bids must be for not less 
than the federally approved fair market value. Each sealed bid must 
include a certified check, money order, bank draft, or cashier's check 
made payable in U.S. dollars to the order of the Bureau of Land 
Management, for 10 percent of the amount of the bid. The highest 
qualifying bidder among the qualified bids received for the sale will 
be declared the high bid and the high bidder will receive written 
notice. Bidders submitting matching high bid amounts will be provided 
an opportunity to submit supplemental bids. The BLM Ukiah Field Manager 
will determine the method of supplemental bidding, which may be by oral 
auction or additional sealed bids. The successful bidder must submit 
the remainder of the full bid price in the form of a certified check, 
money order, bank draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. 
dollars to the Bureau of Land Management prior to the expiration of 180 
days from the date of the sale. Personal checks will not be accepted. 
Failure to submit the full bid price prior to, but not including, the 
180th day following the day of the sale will result in the forfeiture 
of the 10 percent bid deposit to the BLM in accordance with 43 CFR 
2711.3-1(d). No exceptions will be made. The BLM will return checks 
submitted by unsuccessful bidders by U.S. mail. The BLM may accept or 
reject any or all offers, or withdraw any parcel of land or interest 
therein from sale, if, in the opinion of the BLM authorized officer, 
consummation of the sale would not be fully consistent with the FLPMA 
or other applicable law or is determined to not be in the public 
interest. Under Federal law, public lands may only be conveyed to U.S. 
citizens 18 years of age or older; a corporation subject to the laws of 
any State or of the United States; a State, State instrumentality, or 
political subdivision authorized to hold property, or an entity legally 
capable of conveying and holding lands under the laws of the State of 
California. Certification of qualifications, including citizenship or 
corporation or partnership, must accompany the sealed bid. A bid to 
purchase the land will constitute an application for conveyance of the 
mineral interests of no known value, and in conjunction with the final 
payment, the high bidder will be required to pay a $50 non-refundable 
filing fee and any applicable administrative costs for processing the 
conveyance of the mineral interests. If not sold, the land described in 
this Notice may be identified for sale later without further legal 
notice and may be offered for sale by sealed bid, internet auction, or 
oral auction. In order to determine the value, through appraisal, of 
the land proposed to be sold, certain extraordinary assumptions may 
have been made of the attributes and limitations of the lands and 
potential effects of local regulations and policies on potential future 
land uses. Through publication of this Notice, the BLM gives notice 
that these assumptions may not be endorsed or approved by units of 
local government. It is the buyer's responsibility to be aware of all 
applicable local government policies, laws, and regulations that would 
affect the lands, including any required dedication of lands for public 
uses. It is also the buyer's responsibility to be aware of existing or 
projected uses of nearby properties. When conveyed out of Federal 
ownership, the lands will be subject to any applicable reviews and 
approvals by the respective unit of local government for proposed 
future uses, and any such reviews and approvals will be the 
responsibility of the buyer. Any land lacking access from a public road 
or highway will be conveyed as such, and future access acquisition will 
be the responsibility of the buyer. Detailed information concerning the 
proposed land sale including the reservations, sale procedures and 
conditions, appraisal, planning and environmental documents, and a 
mineral report are available for review at the location identified in 
``Addresses'' above. Public Comments regarding the proposed sale may be 
submitted in writing to the attention of the BLM Ukiah Field Manager 
(see ADDRESSES above) on or before August 11, 2011. Comments received 
in electronic form, such as e-mail or facsimile, will not be 
considered. Any adverse comments regarding the proposed sale will be 
reviewed by the BLM State Director or other authorized official of the 
Department of the Interior, who may sustain, vacate, or modify this 
realty

we will be able to do so.
