These projects must involve long-term protection, restoration, and/or enhancement of wetlands and associated uplands habitats for the benefit of all wetlands-associated migratory birds.

DATES: Interested parties may submit written comments regarding the sale and Environmental Assessment until October 11, 2018. The public land will not be offered for sale prior to October 26, 2018.

The FRS is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to leave a message or question with the above individual. You will receive a reply during normal business hours. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The historic Gold Point town site was a gold and silver mining camp known as Lime Point dating back to 1868, and later PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 around 1908, as Hornsilver. The following public lands are involved in the sale: Mount Diablo Meridian, Nevada T. 7 S., R. 411⁄2 E., Sec. 3, Lot 5, Lot 6, SE1⁄4NW1⁄4, N1⁄2NE1⁄4SW1⁄4, SW1⁄4NE1⁄4SW1⁄4, W1⁄2SE1⁄4SW1⁄4, SE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4, and SW1⁄4SW1⁄4SE1⁄4; Sec. 10, N1⁄2NW1⁄4NW1⁄4NE1⁄4, N1⁄2NE1⁄4NE1⁄4NW1⁄4, NW1⁄4NE1⁄4NW1⁄4, and N1⁄2NW1⁄4NW1⁄4. The area described contains 221.68 acres. Upon publication of this Notice in the Federal Register, the public land will segregate from all forms of appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws, and from operation under the mineral leasing and geothermal leasing laws except for the sale provisions of FLPMA. Upon publication of this Notice and until completion of the sale, the BLM will no longer accept new land use applications affecting the identified public lands. The BLM will manage existing land use authorizations, or previously filed applications for land use, in accordance with 43 CFR 2807.15 and 2886.15. The segregation effect will terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the segregation, or on August 27, 2020, unless extended by the BLM Nevada State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1–2(d) prior to the termination date. FLPMA, Section 203(a)(3) and 43 CFR 2710.0–3(a)(2), allows disposal of public land that will serve important public objectives, including expansion of communities and economic development, which cannot be achieved prudently or feasibly on lands other than public lands, and which outweigh other public objectives and values. In accordance with 43 CFR 2710.0– 6(c)(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3–3(a), a direct sale may be appropriate to resolve inadvertent, unauthorized occupancy of the land or to protect existing equities in the land. The sale, if completed, would protect the existing improvements and resolve inadvertent unauthorized use and occupancy. The parcel is not suitable for management by other Federal agencies and is not required for any other Federal purpose. The BLM may sell a tract of public land identified for disposal in an approved land use plan and meets the disposal criteria, as identified in FLPMA. The BLM Tonopah Resource Management Plan (RMP), Appendix 14, pages A–46 through A–49; dated October 2, 1997 designates the public land in question as suitable for disposal. The proposed action is consistent with E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1
