SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The purpose of this Disclaimer of Interest is to remove a cloud on the title of a mineral interest of a parcel of land situated in Tarrant County, Texas. The BLM received an application for a Disclaimer of Interest from the heirs of Virginia C. Yeager and Opal Keating for the mineral estate of land lying near the U.S. Army, Corps of Engineers’ (Corps) Benbrook Lake in Tarrant County, Texas. This is a subsequent application from these applicants and pertains to a second mineral interest lying adjacent to the mineral estate that was the subject of the applicants’ initial Disclaimer of Interest. The mineral estate subject to the initial application is identified as Tract C–214 and a portion of Tract C– 215 located within the John T. Gilliland Survey (A–610) and the William Hunter Survey (A–734). The resulting Disclaimer of Interest disclaimed any interest the United States may have had in Tract C–214 and a portion of Tract C– 215. This Disclaimer of Interest, issued in 2016, was executed by the BLM based upon the opinions of the U.S. Attorney General, Corps, and the BLM acknowledging the minerals underlying the Hunter and Gilliland surveys were severed from the surface estate in 1922 via the mineral deed from J.W. Corn to Virginia C. Yeager and Opal Keating as recorded in Volume 745, Page 578, Tarrant County, Texas; and the mineral interest under the Hunter and Gilliland surveys was never acquired by the Corps. The pending second application from the heirs of Yeager and Keating addresses the mineral estate under the Hunter and Gilliland surveys within Corps Tract B–115. Tract B–115 is located within seven separate surveys and has multiple, complex chains of title for the various parcels making up Tract B–115. The applicants’ second application seeks a Disclaimer of Interest for the western portions of Tract B–115 that are within the Gilliland and Hunter surveys only. The applicants are E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1 54634 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 197 / Thursday, October 10, 2019 / Notices making no claim to the minerals in the eastern portion of Tract B–115 that are within the other five surveys. 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.
