A review of the land status records and title records provided by the applicants indicate that the Corps purchased Tract B–115 in May 1950. As was the case in the initial Disclaimer of Interest, prior to the Corps’ acquisition of Tract B–115, the mineral estate was transferred from J.W. Corn to his daughters, and the Corps did not acquire the mineral estate under Tract B–115. In order to remove the cloud on the title, the BLM intends to disclaim the land described as: All that portion of Tract B–115, located within the John T. Gilliland Survey, A–610, and the William Hunter Survey, A–734 (minerals only). Tract B–115, situated in the County of Tarrant, State of Texas, the Tract described is shown upon a portion the U.S. Army, Corps, Office of the Fort Worth District Engineer, Southwest Project Map, entitled ‘‘REAL ESTATE BENBROOK LAKE,’’ dated November 5, 1986, supplementing this Disclaimer of Interest. The area contains 73.12 acres as identified by the Corps documents listed above. This Disclaimer of Interest does not address any surface interest that may still be vested with the United States of America. The public is hereby notified that comments may be submitted to the Deputy State Director, Lands and Resources, at the address shown earlier within the comment period identified in this notice. Any adverse comments will be evaluated by the State Director who may modify or vacate this action and issue a final determination.
