    The areas described aggregate 440 acres, more or less, in San 
Bernardino County, California.
    The purpose of the withdrawal is to protect the biological 
resources within the SBNF, which include four listed threatened and 
endangered plant species and their designated critical habitat. The 
withdrawal will implement provisions of the Carbonate Habitat 
Management Strategy under the SBNF Land Management Plan. It will allow 
the species and habitat conservation measures needed to offset species 
and habitat losses specifically associated with two currently proposed 
mine development projects on the SBNF. These two projects are the Omya 
Inc. Butterfield Quarry Expansion and the Mitsubishi Cement Company 
South Quarry project.
    No alternative sites were considered, as these lands correspond 
with the distribution of the listed species habitats, and meet 
provisions of the Carbonate Habitat Management Strategy.
    The use of a right-of-way, interagency agreement, or cooperative 
agreement would not provide adequate protection from mineral 
activities.
    The USFS does not need to acquire water rights to fulfill the 
purpose of the requested withdrawal.
    The above-described lands are National Forest System lands, and as 
such, the Secretary will approve a withdrawal only with the consent of 
the head of the department or agency administering these lands.
    The temporary land uses, which may be permitted during this 
segregative period, include leases, licenses, permits, rights-of-way, 
and other non-mineral uses consistent with the SBNF Management Plan, 
other than under the mining laws.
