The BLM has authority to issue geothermal leases in BLM-managed lands, and in national forests and other lands administered by the USFS.

A respondent submits this form either to the BLM or to the USFS, depending upon which agency has surface-management jurisdiction. Upon receiving such a form, the relevant agency determines whether to grant a permit to conduct geophysical exploration activities for geothermal resources. Approval by the authorizing agency is required before any ground-disturbing activities beyond casual use may commence. At present, Form 3200–9 refers directly only to the BLM. The proposed revisions of the form would simplify its use by both agencies. The BLM is proposing that the remaining forms in this ICR be renewed without revision.
