The BLM has examined the lands described above for evidence of valid existing rights and any constraints that would prevent conveyance. No persons other than holders of leases, permits, and rights-of-way, asserted a claim to, or interest in, the lands proposed for classification. When the selection is certified to the State, the document transferring title will contain the following reservations to the United States: 1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches and canals constructed by the authority of the United States, pursuant to the Act of August 30, 1890, 26 Stat. 391 (43 U.S.C. 945). 2.

Right-of-way holders will be afforded the opportunity to modify their existing VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:58 Nov 14, 2017 Jkt 244001 authorization per 43 CFR 2807.15 prior to official transfer of the lands to the State. The subject lands contain grazing leases authorized under Section 15 of the Taylor Grazing Act. The holders of the BLM grazing use authorizations received the required 2-year notices as outlined in 43 CFR 4110.4–2(b). The lands will not be conveyed until expiration of the 2-year period or receipt of a waiver from the current holder. State of Montana procedures provide that upon Land Board Approval, the State will offer 10-year grazing leases to the current holders of BLM permits/ leases on any transferred lands. The lands contain no oil and gas, geothermal, or other leases issued under the authority of the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920 (30 U.S.C. 181 et seq.). No mining claims are recorded with the BLM on these lands, nor was any evidence of mining activity found on the ground. Title will not be subject to the agricultural leases issued under the authority of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1732) that expire on December 31, 2017. This Notice also extends the proposed classification and segregation of the land contained in the State’s application, but not yet found suitable for conveyance, for a period of 2 additional years through December 1, 2019. These lands remain segregated from all forms of disposal under the public land laws, including the mining laws, except for the form of land disposal specified in the notice of proposed classification. This publication does not alter the applicability of the public land laws governing the use of the lands under lease, license, or permits or governing the disposal of their mineral and vegetative resources, other than under the mining laws. The segregative effect of this extension will terminate in one of the following ways: (1) Classification of the lands within 2 years of publication of this notice of extension of the proposed classification in the Federal Register; (2) Publication of a notice of termination of the proposed classification in the Federal Register; (3) An Act of Congress; or (4) Expiration of the additional 2-year period extending the proposed classification afforded by publication of this Notice. Authority: 43 CFR parts 2400 and 2621. Jon K. Raby, Acting State Director, Montana/Dakotas.
