Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 48462 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 153 / Thursday, August 8, 2013 / Notices On the LBA tract, there are two mineable seams, the Anderson Rider, which ranges from about 2 feet to 49 feet thick and averages about 26 feet thick, and the merged Anderson/Canyon Seams, which range from about 46 feet to 120 feet thick and average about 68 feet thick. Overall, the two mineable seams average about 94 feet thick over the LBA tract. The two seams are continuous over the entire tract with no outcrops or subcrops. Overburden depth to the upper Anderson Rider ranges from approximately 50 feet to 449 feet thick and averages approximately 163 feet thick. The interburden to the merged Anderson/Canyon Seams ranges from approximately 0 feet to 190 feet thick and averages approximately 88 feet thick. The tract contains an estimated 167,001,577 tons of mineable coal. This estimate of mineable reserves includes the main seams mentioned above but does not include any tonnage from localized seams or splits containing less than 5 feet of coal. The total mineable stripping ratio of the coal in Bank Cubic Yards per ton is approximately 2.8:1. Potential bidders for the LBA should consider the recovery rate expected from multiple seam mining. The Hay Creek II LBA coal is ranked as subbituminous C. The overall average quality on an as-received basis is 8,297 British Thermal Units per pound containing approximately 0.27 percent sulfur. These quality averages place the coal reserves near the lower end of the range of coal quality currently being mined in the Wyoming portion of the Powder River Basin. The tract will be leased to the qualified bidder of the highest cash amount provided that the high bid meets or exceeds the BLM’s estimate of the fair market value (FMV) of the tract. The minimum bid for the tract is $100 per acre or fraction thereof. No bid that is less than $100 per acre, or fraction thereof, will be considered. The bids should be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, or be hand-delivered. The BLM Wyoming State Office Cashier will issue a receipt for each handdelivered bid. Bids received after 4 p.m. local time on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, will not be considered. The minimum bid is not intended to represent FMV. The FMV of the tract will be determined by the Authorized Officer after the sale. The lease that may be issued as a result of this offering will provide for payment of an annual rental of $3 per acre, or fraction thereof, and a royalty payment to the United States of 12.5 percent of the value of coal produced by surface mining methods. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:55 Aug 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 The value of the coal will be determined in accordance with 30 CFR 1206.250. Pursuant to the regulation at 43 CFR 3473.2(f), the applicant for the Hay Creek II Tract, Kiewit Mining Properties, Inc., has paid a total case-by-case cost recovery processing fee in the amount of $199,243. The successful bidder for the Hay Creek II Tract, if someone other than the applicant, must pay to the BLM the $199,243 previously paid by Kiewit Mining Properties, Inc. Additionally, the successful bidder must pay all processing costs the BLM will incur after the date this sale notice is published in the Federal Register, which are estimated to be $10,000. Bidding instructions for the LBA tract offered and the terms and conditions of the proposed coal lease are available from the BLM Wyoming State Office at the address above. Case file documents, WYW172684, are available for inspection at the BLM Wyoming State Office. Donald A. Simpson, State Director.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (The Recovery 
Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009. 
Funding directed to the Department of Labor from the Recovery Act 
provided $750 million for a program of competitive grants for worker 
training and placement in high growth and emerging industries, which 
included $500 million in funding for energy efficiency and renewable 
energy, often referred to as ``green jobs.'' In the FY 2010 budget, 
approximately $40 million in grant funds were authorized by the 
Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998, Title I, Subtitle D, Section 
171(d), Public Law 105-220 for GJIF. With grants funded through GJIF, 
the Department is emphasizing two key workforce strategies that move 
participants along green career pathways by: (1) Forging linkages 
between Registered Apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs, and/
or (2) integrating the delivery of technical and basic skills training 
through community-based partnerships.
    It is critical to record the impact of all these resources, current 
information on participants in these grants, and the services provided 
to them. ETA received initial approval for this information collection 
in June, 2010. The ARRA HGEI grants will all end by November 30, 2013, 
but to ensure that it can continue to obtain comprehensive information 
on participants served by and services provided with Federal resources, 
ETA proposes an extension with no revisions of the existing OMB-
approved information collection set 1205-0478 for GJIF 
grantees.

II. Review Focus

    The Department is particularly interested in comments which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.
