No water rights will be needed to fulfill the purpose of the requested withdrawal.

Notice is hereby given that an opportunity for a public meeting is afforded in connection with the proposed withdrawal extension. All interested persons who desire a public meeting for the purpose of being heard on the proposed withdrawal extension must submit a written request to the BLM Malta Field Manager at the address above by May 7, 2015.

Sealed-bid envelopes must be clearly marked on the lower front left corner with the parcel number and name of the sale, for example: ‘‘N–XXXXX, 29-parcel SNPLMA Sale 2015.’’ Sealed bids must include an amount not less than 20 percent of the total amount bid and the $10,000 bid guarantee by certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable to the ‘‘Department of the Interior-Bureau of Land Management.’’ The bid guarantee and bid deposit may be combined into one form of deposit; the bidder must specify the amounts of the bid deposit and the bid guarantee.

The apparent high bidder must submit a deposit of not less than 20 percent of the successful bid delivered no later than 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the day of the sale and in the form of a certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or cashier’s check made payable in U.S. dollars to the ‘‘Department of the Interior—Bureau of Land Management.’’ Funds must be delivered no later than 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the day of the sale to the BLM Collection Officers at the City of North Las Vegas, 2250 Las Vegas Boulevard North, Council VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Feb 05, 2015 Jkt 235001 Chambers, North Las Vegas, Nevada 89030.

If the apparent high bidder so chooses, the bid guarantee may be applied towards the required deposit. Failure to submit the deposit following the close of the sale under 43 CFR 2711.3–1(d) will result in forfeiture of the bid guarantee. For bidders who offer to purchase more than one parcel, the BLM will retain the bid guarantee, and may cancel the sale of all the parcels to that bidder, if the bidder fails to submit the bid deposit on any single parcel following the sale. If an offer to purchase one parcel results in default, the BLM may retain the bid deposit and cancel the sale to that bidder. If a high bidder is unable to consummate the transaction for any reason, the second highest bid may be considered to purchase the parcel. If there are no acceptable bids, a parcel may remain available for sale at a future date in accordance with competitive sale procedures without further legal notice. Federal law requires that bidders must be: (1) A citizen of the United States 18 years of age or older; (2) A corporation subject to the laws of any State or of the United States; (3) A State, State instrumentality, or political subdivision authorized to hold property; or (4) An entity legally capable of conveying and holding lands or interests therein under the laws of the State of Nevada. Evidence of United States citizenship is a birth certificate, passport, or naturalization papers.

In order to determine the FMV through appraisal, certain extraordinary assumptions and hypothetical conditions may have been made concerning 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 advises 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 Federal, State, and local government laws, regulations and policies that may affect the subject lands, including any required dedication of lands for public uses. It is also the buyer’s responsibility to be aware of existing or prospective uses of nearby properties.

    The areas described contain 597.59 acres.

    A sales matrix is available on the BLM Web site at: http://www.blm.gov/snplma. The sales matrix provides information specific to 
each sale parcel such as legal description, physical location, 
encumbrances, acreage, and FMV. The FMV for each parcel is available in 
the sales matrix as soon as approved and no later than 30 days prior to 
the sale.
    The sale parcel (N-91124) consists of split-estate lands. The 
parcel of approximately 247.59 acres overlies privately owned sand and 
gravel deposits patented out of Federal ownership pursuant to Private 
Law 96-67 signed on December 5, 1980, for the relief of two mining 
claimants. The patent provides for the private ownership and use of the 
sand and gravel deposits and such use of the surface that is reasonably 
required for mining. The northern portion of the sale parcel is near 
the southern boundary of Nellis Air Force Base near the Live Ordnance 
Loading Area. The existing explosion evacuation arcs extend onto the 
northern portion of the sale parcel.
    This proposed competitive sale is in conformance with the BLM, Las 
Vegas Resource Management Plan and decision LD-1, approved by Record of 
Decision on October 5, 1998, and complies with Section 203 of FLPMA. 
The sale parcels were analyzed in the Las Vegas Valley Disposal 
Boundary Environmental Impact Statement and approved by Record of 
Decision on December 23, 2004. A parcel-specific Determination of 
National Environmental Policy Act Adequacy document numbered DOI-BLM-
NV-S010-2014-0135-DNA was prepared in connection with this Notice of 
Realty Action.
    Submit comments on this sale Notice to the address in the ADDRESSES 
section. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or 
other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be 
aware that your entire comment--including any personal identifying 
information--might be made publicly available at any time. While you 
can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying 
information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be 
able to do so. The BLM will also publish this Notice once a week for 
three consecutive weeks in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
    Sale procedures: Registration for oral bidding will begin at 8 a.m. 
Pacific Time and will end at 10 a.m. Pacific Time at the City of North 
Las Vegas, 2250 Las Vegas Boulevard North, Council Chambers, North Las 
Vegas, Nevada 89030, on the day of the sale. There will be no prior 
registration before the sale date. To participate in the competitive 
sale, all registered bidders must submit a bid guarantee deposit in the 
amount of $10,000 by certified check, postal money order, bank draft, 
or cashier's check made payable to the Department of the Interior-
Bureau of Land Management on the day of the sale or submit the bid 
guarantee deposit along

[[Page 6750]]

with the sealed bids. The public sale auction will be through sealed 
and oral bids. Sealed bids will be opened and recorded on the day of 
the sale to determine the high bids among the qualified bids received. 
Sealed bids above the FMV will set the starting point for oral bidding 
on a parcel. Parcels that receive no qualified sealed bids will begin 
at the established FMV. Bidders who are participating and attending the 
oral auction on the date of the sale are not required to submit a 
sealed bid, but may choose to do so.
    Sealed-bid envelopes must be clearly marked on the lower front left 
corner with the parcel number and name of the sale, for example: ``N-
XXXXX, 29-parcel SNPLMA Sale 2015.'' Sealed bids must include an amount 
not less than 20 percent of the total amount bid and the $10,000 bid 
guarantee by certified check, postal money order, bank draft, or 
cashier's check made payable to the ``Department of the Interior-Bureau 
of Land Management.'' The bid guarantee and bid deposit may be combined 
into one form of deposit; the bidder must specify the amounts of the 
bid deposit and the bid guarantee. The BLM will not accept personal or 
company checks. The sealed-bid envelope must contain the 20 percent bid 
deposit, bid guarantee, and a completed and signed ``Certificate of 
Eligibility'' form stating the name, mailing address, and telephone 
number of the entity or person submitting the bid. Certificate of 
Eligibility and registration forms are available at the BLM, LVFO at 
the address listed in the ADDRESSES section and on the BLM Web site at: 
http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/snplma/Land_Auctions.html. Pursuant to 43 
CFR 2711.3-1(c), if two or more sealed-bid envelopes containing valid 
bids of the same amount are received, oral bidding will start at the 
sealed-bid amount. If there are no oral bids on the parcel, the 
authorized officer will determine the winning bidder. Bids for less 
than the federally approved FMV will not be qualified. The highest 
qualifying bid for any parcel will be declared the high bid. The 
apparent high bidder must submit a deposit of not less than 20 percent 
of the successful bid delivered no later than 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on 
the day of the sale and in the form of a certified check, postal money 
order, bank draft, or cashier's check made payable in U.S. dollars to 
the ``Department of the Interior--Bureau of Land Management.'' Funds 
must be delivered no later than 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on the day of 
the sale to the BLM Collection Officers at the City of North Las Vegas, 
2250 Las Vegas Boulevard North, Council Chambers, North Las Vegas, 
Nevada 89030. The BLM-LVFO will accept funds. The BLM will send the 
successful bidder(s) a high-bidder letter with detailed information for 
full payment.
    All funds submitted with unsuccessful bids will be returned to the 
bidders or their authorized representative upon presentation of 
acceptable photo identification at the BLM LVFO or by certified mail. 
If the apparent high bidder so chooses, the bid guarantee may be 
applied towards the required deposit. Failure to submit the deposit 
following the close of the sale under 43 CFR 2711.3-1(d) will result in 
forfeiture of the bid guarantee. For bidders who offer to purchase more 
than one parcel, the BLM will retain the bid guarantee, and may cancel 
the sale of all the parcels to that bidder, if the bidder fails to 
submit the bid deposit on any single parcel following the sale. If an 
offer to purchase one parcel results in default, the BLM may retain the 
bid deposit and cancel the sale to that bidder. If a high bidder is 
unable to consummate the transaction for any reason, the second highest 
bid may be considered to purchase the parcel. If there are no 
acceptable bids, a parcel may remain available for sale at a future 
date in accordance with competitive sale procedures without further 
legal notice.
    Federal law requires that bidders must be: (1) A citizen of the 
United States 18 years of age or older; (2) A corporation subject to 
the laws of any State or of the United States; (3) A State, State 
instrumentality, or political subdivision authorized to hold property; 
or (4) An entity legally capable of conveying and holding lands or 
interests therein under the laws of the State of Nevada.
    Evidence of United States citizenship is a birth certificate, 
passport, or naturalization papers. Failure to submit the above 
requested documents to the BLM within 30 days from receipt of the high-
bidder letter will result in cancellation of the sale and forfeiture of 
the bid deposit. The successful bidder is allowed 180 days from the 
date of the sale to submit the remainder of the full purchase price.
    Publication of this Notice in the Federal Register segregates the 
subject lands from all forms of appropriation under the public land 
laws. Any subsequent application will not be accepted, will not be 
considered and filed, and will be returned to the applicant if the 
Notice segregates from the use applied for in the application. The 
segregative effect of this Notice terminates upon issuances of a patent 
or other document of conveyance to such lands, publication in the 
Federal Register of a termination of the segregative, or two years 
after the date of this publication, whichever occurs first. The 
segregation period may not exceed two years unless extended by the BLM 
Nevada State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to 
the termination date.
    Terms and Conditions: All minerals for the sale parcels will be 
reserved to the United States. The patents, when issued, will contain a 
mineral reservation to the United States for all minerals.
    The parcels are subject to limitations prescribed by law and 
regulation, and certain encumbrances in favor of third parties. Prior 
to patent issuance, a holder of any right-of-way (ROW) within the sale 
parcels will have the opportunity to amend the ROW for conversion to a 
new term, including perpetuity, if applicable, or conversion to an 
easement. The BLM will notify valid existing ROW holders of record of 
their ability to convert their compliant ROW to perpetual ROW or 
easement. In accordance with Federal regulations at 43 CFR 2807.15, 
once notified, each valid holder may apply for the conversion of their 
current authorization.
    The following numbered terms and conditions will appear on the 
conveyance documents for the sale parcels:
    1. All minerals deposits in the lands so patented, and to it, or 
persons authorized by it, the right to prospect for, mine, and remove 
such deposits from the same under applicable law and regulations to be 
established by the Secretary of the Interior are reserved to the United 
States, together with all necessary access and exit rights;
    2. A right-of-way is reserved for ditches and canals constructed by 
authority of the United States under the Act of August 30, 1890 (43 
U.S.C. 945);
    3. The parcels are subject to valid existing rights;
    4. The parcels are subject to reservations for road, public 
utilities and flood control purposes, both existing and proposed, in 
accordance with the local governing entities' transportation plans; and
    5. An appropriate indemnification clause protecting the United 
States from claims arising out of the lessee's/patentee's use, 
occupancy, or occupations on the leased/patented lands.
    Pursuant to the requirements established by Section 120(h) of the 
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability

[[Page 6751]]

Act, 42 U.S.C. 9620(h) (CERCLA), as amended, notice is hereby given 
that the lands have been examined and no evidence was found to indicate 
that any hazardous substances have been stored for one year or more, 
nor had any hazardous substances been disposed of or released on the 
subject property.
    No warranty of any kind, express or implied, is given by the United 
States as to the title, whether or to what extent the land may be 
developed, its physical condition, future uses, or any other 
circumstance or condition. The conveyance of a parcel will not be on a 
contingency basis. However, to the extent required by law, the parcel 
is subject to the requirements of Section 120(h) of the CERCLA.
    Unless the BLM authorized officer approved other satisfactory 
arrangements in advance, conveyance of title will be through the use of 
escrow. Designation of the escrow agent will be through mutual 
agreement between the BLM and the prospective patentee, and costs of 
escrow will be borne by the prospective patentee.
    Request for escrow instructions must be received by the BLM, LVFO 
prior to 30 days before the prospective patentee's scheduled closing 
date. No exceptions will be made.
    All name changes and supporting documentation must be received at 
the BLM, LVFO 30 days from the date on the high-bidder letter by 4:30 
p.m. Pacific Time. There are no exceptions. To submit a name change, 
the apparent high bidder must submit the name change in writing on the 
Certificate of Eligibility form to the BLM, LVFO.
    The remainder of the full bid price for the parcel must be received 
no later than 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time, within 180 days following the day 
of the sale. Payment must be submitted in the form of a certified 
check, postal money order, bank draft, cashier's check, or made 
available by electronic fund transfer made payable in U.S. dollars to 
the ``Department of the Interior--Bureau of Land Management'' to the 
BLM LVFO. The BLM will not accept personal or company checks.
    Arrangements for electronic fund transfer to the BLM for payment of 
the balance due must be made a minimum of two weeks prior to the 
payment date. Failure to pay the full bid price prior to the expiration 
of the 180th day will disqualify the high bidder and cause the entire 
20 percent bid deposit to be forfeited to the BLM. Forfeiture of the 20 
percent bid deposit is in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.3-1(d). No 
exceptions will be made. The BLM cannot accept the remainder of the bid 
price after the 180th day of the sale date.
    The BLM will not sign any documents related to 1031 Exchange 
transactions. The timing for completion of such an exchange is the 
bidder's responsibility. The BLM cannot be a party to any 1031 
Exchange.
    In accordance with 43 CFR 2711.3-1(f), within 30 days the BLM may 
accept or reject any or all offers to purchase, or withdraw any parcel 
of land or interest therein from sale if, in the opinion of a BLM 
authorized officer, consummation of the sale would be inconsistent with 
any law, or for other reasons as may be provided by applicable law or 
regulations. No contractual or other rights against the United States 
may accrue until the BLM officially accepts the offer to purchase and 
the full bid price is paid.
    Upon publication of this Notice and until completion of this sale, 
the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the 
parcel identified for sale. However, land use applications may be 
considered after the sale if the parcel is not sold. The parcel may be 
subject to land use applications received prior to publication of this 
Notice if processing the application would have no adverse effect on 
the marketability of title, or the FMV of the parcel. Information 
concerning the sale, encumbrances of record, appraisals, reservations, 
procedures and conditions, CERCLA, and other environmental documents 
that may appear in the BLM public files for the proposed sale parcels 
are available for review during business hours, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 
Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, at the BLM, LVFO, except during 
Federal holidays.
    In order to determine the FMV through appraisal, certain 
extraordinary assumptions and hypothetical conditions may have been 
made concerning 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 advises that 
these assumptions may not be endorsed or approved by units of local
