SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The RMP amendment and associated EA will determine whether a parcel of surveyed public land located north of Milford, in Beaver County, Utah, is suitable for disposal by sale. The parcel comprises the subject of the RMP amendment and is described as: Salt Lake Meridian, Utah T. 27 S., R. 10 W., Sec. 7, SE1/4SW1/4SE1/4SE1/4SW1/4 and S1/2SE1/4SE1/4SE1/4SW1/4; Sec. 18, N1/2NE1/4NE1/4NW1/4, NE1/ 4SE1/4NE1/4NE1/4NW1/4, and SE1/ 4NE1/4NW1/4NE1/4NW1/4. Areas described aggregate 8.125 acres.

Under Section 209 of the FLPMA, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1719), and regulations implementing this section at 43 CFR Part 2720, the BLM may dispose of the associated mineral estate of no known value to the proposed owner or owner of record of the surface estate for the parcel of public land. The parcel is proposed for direct sale to the adjacent landowners, Kent and Alice Smith, to resolve unauthorized uses, including a portion of their primary residence and other structures. The parcel represents the smallest legal subdivision that would wholly encompass all improvements and the debris remaining from the Smith’s former hauling and salvage operation. In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0– 6(c)(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3–3(a), direct sale procedures are appropriate to resolve inadvertent, unauthorized occupancy of the land or to protect existing equities in the land. The sale, if completed, would protect the improvements involved and resolve the inadvertent encroachment. Conveyance of the identified public land would be subject to valid existing rights and encumbrances of record. The lands identified for sale are considered to have no known mineral value based on a mineral potential report conducted by the BLM. The proposed sale would include both the surface interests and the mineral interest of the United States. The patent would include an appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United States from claims arising out of the patentee’s use occupancy or occupations on the patented lands. On August 20, 2014, the abovedescribed land will be segregated from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the sale, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the identified public land, except applications for the amendment of previously-filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or August 19, 2016, unless extended by the BLM Utah State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date. The proposed sale action would require amendment of the Cedar Beaver Garfield Antimony RMP, approved in 1986.

On March 20, 2013, the BLM published a Notice of Realty Action (NORA) in the Federal Register (78 FR 17227) to segregate the parcel from appropriation under the public land and mining laws. The segregative effect of that notice shall terminate upon issuance of a patent, upon publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or on March 20, 2014, whichever comes first.

A reservation of all minerals to the United States; 2. A right-of-way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the authority of the United States pursuant to the Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945); and 3.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The RMP amendment and associated EA will 
determine whether a parcel of surveyed public land located north of 
Milford, in Beaver County, Utah, is suitable for disposal by sale. The 
parcel comprises the subject of the RMP amendment and is described as:

Salt Lake Meridian, Utah

T. 27 S., R. 10 W.,
    Sec. 7, SE1/4SW1/4SE1/4SE1/4SW1/4 and S1/2SE1/4SE1/4SE1/4SW1/4;
    Sec. 18, N1/2NE1/4NE1/4NW1/4, NE1/4SE1/4NE1/4NE1/4NW1/4, and 
SE1/4NE1/4NW1/4NE1/4NW1/4.

    Areas described aggregate 8.125 acres.

    Under Section 203 of the FLPMA, as amended (43 U.S.C 1713), if a 
parcel of public land is found suitable for disposal, then it may be 
offered for sale at the appraised fair market value. Under Section 209 
of the FLPMA, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1719), and regulations implementing 
this section at 43 CFR Part 2720, the BLM may dispose of the associated 
mineral estate of no known value to the proposed owner or owner of 
record of the surface estate for the parcel of public land.
    The parcel is proposed for direct sale to the adjacent landowners, 
Kent and Alice Smith, to resolve unauthorized uses, including a portion 
of their primary residence and other structures. The parcel represents 
the smallest legal subdivision that would wholly encompass all 
improvements and the debris remaining from the Smith's former hauling 
and salvage operation.
    In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0-6(c)(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3-
3(a), direct sale procedures are appropriate to resolve inadvertent, 
unauthorized occupancy of the land or to protect existing equities in 
the land. The sale, if completed, would protect the improvements 
involved and resolve the inadvertent encroachment.
    Conveyance of the identified public land would be subject to valid 
existing rights and encumbrances of record. The lands identified for 
sale are considered to have no known mineral value based on a mineral 
potential report conducted by the BLM. The proposed sale would include 
both the surface interests and the mineral interest of the United 
States. The patent would include an appropriate indemnification clause 
protecting the United States from claims arising out of the patentee's 
use occupancy or occupations on the patented lands.
    On August 20, 2014, the above-described land will be segregated 
from appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining 
laws, except the sale provisions of the FLPMA. Until completion of the 
sale, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting 
the identified public land, except applications for the amendment of 
previously-filed right-of-way applications or existing authorizations 
to increase the term of the grants in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 
and 2886.15. The segregative effect will terminate upon issuance of a 
patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the 
segregation, or August 19, 2016, unless extended by the BLM Utah State 
Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination 
date.
    The proposed sale action would require amendment of the Cedar 
Beaver Garfield Antimony RMP, approved in 1986. By this notice, the BLM 
is complying with requirements in 43 CFR

[[Page 49337]]

1610.2(c) to notify the public of potential amendments to land use 
plans, predicated on the finding of the EA. The RMP amendment process 
will focus on the following preliminary planning criteria:
     The RMP amendment will focus only on determination that 
the specific 8.125 acre parcel meets FLPMA criteria for disposal;
     The RMP amendment will comply with NEPA, FLPMA, and other 
applicable laws, executive orders, regulations and policy;
     The RMP amendment will recognize valid existing rights; 
and
     The BLM will use a collaborative and multi-jurisdictional 
approach, where possible, to determine the desired future condition of 
the public lands.
    The purpose of the public scoping process is to determine relevant 
issues that will influence the scope of the environmental analysis, 
including alternatives, and guide the process for developing the EA. At 
present, the BLM has identified the following preliminary issue: lands 
and realty management.
    The BLM will utilize and coordinate the NEPA commenting process to 
help fulfill the public involvement process under Section 106 of the 
National Historic Preservation Act (16 U.S.C. 470f) as provided for in 
36 CFR 800.2(d)(3). Native American Tribal consultations will be 
conducted in accordance with policy, and Tribal concerns will be given 
due consideration, including impacts on Indian trust assets. Federal, 
State, and local agencies, along with other stakeholders that may be 
interested or affected by the BLM's decision on this project are 
invited to participate in the scoping process and, if eligible, may 
request or be requested by the BLM to participate as a cooperating 
agency.

other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be
