SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2011, the BLM and OMYA Inc. entered into a Settlement Agreement to resolve the unauthorized use of public lands associated with OMYA’s mining operations at its White Knob Quarry. In accordance with that Settlement Agreement, the BLM is considering a direct sale of public land to OMYA under the authority of 43 U.S.C. 1713 and 1719 (Sections 203 and 209 of FLPMA). The BLM published a Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EA and an Amendment to the CDCA Plan in the Federal Register on October 4, 2012. The NOI provided for a 30-day public scoping period for the LUPA, announced the beginning of the scoping process for the EA, and sought public input on environmental issues. No public comments were received. The Proposed Action (Alternative A) includes the direct land sale of 70 acres of public land to OMYA to resolve the unauthorized use and meet OMYA’s need for additional land for disposal of mine waste. To accommodate the proposed land sale, a LUPA is required to change the land use designation of the affected parcel from an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC) to General Public Lands (GPL). The parcel proposed for sale is currently within the Granite Mountain Wildlife Linkage ACEC as designated in the Desert Renewable Energy and Conservation Plan. The ACEC provides a link for wildlife populations to the north and south of this area. The LUPA ADDRESSES: PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 would also satisfy the criteria for the sale of public lands under Sections 203 and 209 of FLPMA. In addition to the Proposed Action, two other alternatives are included in the EA. Alternative B (No Action), does not authorize a direct sale of public land, authorizes the continued management of the placer mining claims owned by OMYA and orders the restoration of the site consistent with the applicable mining law. Alternative C provides for a direct land sale of 45 acres of public land to OMYA; a LUPA to remove 45 acres from the Granite Mountain Wildlife Linkage ACEC; and change the land use designation of the affected parcel to GPL, with continued management of the remainder of the placer claims owned by OMYA consistent with the 1872 Mining Law. Alternative A is the BLM’s preferred alternative in the EA. Below are the legal descriptions of the public lands considered in the range of alternatives starting with the 70-acre parcel followed by the 45-acre parcel. 70-Acre Legal Description San Bernardino Meridian, California T. 3 N, R. 1 W, Sec. 5, SW1⁄4SW1⁄4, W1⁄2SE1⁄4SW1⁄4, and SE1⁄4SE1⁄4SW1⁄4.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In 2011, the BLM and OMYA Inc. entered into 
a Settlement Agreement to resolve the unauthorized use of public lands 
associated with OMYA's mining operations at its White Knob Quarry. In 
accordance with that Settlement Agreement, the BLM is considering a 
direct sale of public land to OMYA under the authority of 43 U.S.C. 
1713 and 1719 (Sections 203 and 209 of FLPMA). The BLM published a 
Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an EA and an Amendment to the CDCA 
Plan in the Federal Register on October 4, 2012. The NOI provided for a 
30-day public scoping period for the LUPA, announced the beginning of 
the scoping process for the EA, and sought public input on 
environmental issues. No public comments were received.
    The Proposed Action (Alternative A) includes the direct land sale 
of 70 acres of public land to OMYA to resolve the unauthorized use and 
meet OMYA's need for additional land for disposal of mine waste. To 
accommodate the proposed land sale, a LUPA is required to change the 
land use designation of the affected parcel from an Area of Critical 
Environmental Concern (ACEC) to General Public Lands (GPL). The parcel 
proposed for sale is currently within the Granite Mountain Wildlife 
Linkage ACEC as designated in the Desert Renewable Energy and 
Conservation Plan. The ACEC provides a link for wildlife populations to 
the north and south of this area. The LUPA would also satisfy the 
criteria for the sale of public lands under Sections 203 and 209 of 
FLPMA. In addition to the Proposed Action, two other alternatives are 
included in the EA. Alternative B (No Action), does not authorize a 
direct sale of public land, authorizes the continued management of the 
placer mining claims owned by OMYA and orders the restoration of the 
site consistent with the applicable mining law. Alternative C provides 
for a direct land sale of 45 acres of public land to OMYA; a LUPA to 
remove 45 acres from the Granite Mountain Wildlife Linkage ACEC; and 
change the land use designation of the affected parcel to GPL, with 
continued management of the remainder of the placer claims owned by 
OMYA consistent with the 1872 Mining Law. Alternative A is the BLM's 
preferred alternative in the EA.
    Below are the legal descriptions of the public lands considered in 
the range of alternatives starting with the 70-acre parcel followed by 
the 45-acre parcel.
