Scandium was produced mainly as a byproduct in China, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, Russia, and Ukraine. Cesium and rubidium had been produced in Australia, Canada, China, Namibia, and Zimbabwe; however, it is thought that all cesium and rubidium mine production outside of China has either ceased in recent years or come under control of Chinese companies. The REEs that were not analyzed because of the lack of data (namely europium, gadolinium, terbium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium) were all heavy REEs that were produced only or predominantly in China. Based on this qualitative evaluation, none of these commodities are recommended for removal from the list of critical minerals. Mineral criticality is not static, but changes over time. This analysis represents the most recent available data for non-fuel mineral commodities and the current state of the methodology for evaluation of criticality.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 6, 2015, the Decision Record authorizing the BITD Parker Races SRP was signed. This permit authorizes the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71087 BITD to utilize the Parker 400 course for the Parker 250 race event on January 6 through 9, 2022, and for the Parker 425 race event on January 20 through 23, 2022. The permit is authorized from 2015 through 2024. The Environmental Assessment analyzing these routes (EA #DOI–BLM–AZ–C030–2014–0040) concluded that allowing permitted motorized racers exclusive use of the Lake Havasu Field Office Record of Decision/Approved Resource Management Plan (2007) designated Parker 400 course would mitigate safety concerns. These routes receive the most intense and concentrated high-speed use during the two annual permitted events. These temporary closures and restrictions affect public lands in and around the Parker 400 course near the communities of Parker and Bouse in La Paz County, Arizona. The temporary closure applies to all public use, including pedestrian and vehicles, unless excepted. The temporary closure area follows the Parker 400 course as designated in the 2007 Lake Havasu Resource Management Plan. Within the temporary restriction area, the temporary restrictions apply in addition to all existing regulations. The temporary restriction area begins on public lands east of the eastern boundary of the Colorado River Indian Tribe (CRIT) Reservation, along Shea Road, then east into Osborne Wash onto the Parker-Swansea Road to the Central Arizona Project (CAP) Canal, then north on the west side of the CAP Canal, crossing the canal on the countymaintained road, running northeast into Mineral Wash Canyon, then southeast on the county-maintained road, through the four-corners intersection to the Midway (Pit) intersection, then east on Transmission Pass Road, through State Trust Land located in Butler Valley, turning north into Cunningham Wash to North Tank, continuing south to Transmission Pass Road and east (reentering public land) within two miles of Alamo Dam Road. The temporary restriction area boundary turns south and west onto the wooden power line road, onto the State Trust Land in Butler Valley, turning southwest into Cunningham Wash to the Graham Well, intersecting Butler Valley Road, then north and west on the county-maintained road to the ‘‘Bouse Y’’ intersection, two miles north of Bouse, Arizona. The temporary restriction area boundary proceeds north, paralleling the Bouse-Swansea Road to the Midway (Pit) intersection, then west along the north boundary (power line) road of the East Cactus Plain Wilderness Area to Parker- E:\FR\FM\14DEN1.SGM 14DEN1 71088 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 14, 2021 / Notices jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 Swansea Road. The temporary restriction area boundary turns west into Osborne Wash crossing the CAP Canal, along the north boundary of the Cactus Plain Wilderness Study Area; it continues west staying in Osborne Wash and crossing Shea Road along the southern boundary of Gibraltar Wilderness, rejoining Osborne Wash at the CRIT Reservation boundary. The temporary closures and restrictions are necessary because of the high-speed nature of the race event and the added safety concerns due to the limited visibility when there is no daylight. Roads leading into the public lands under the temporary closure and restrictions will be posted with copies of the temporary closure, temporary restrictions, and associated maps to notify the public. The temporary closure and restriction orders will be posted in the Lake Havasu Field Office and online at: https://www.blm.gov/office/lakehavasu-field-office.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On January 6, 2015, the Decision Record 
authorizing the BITD Parker Races SRP was signed. This permit 
authorizes the BITD to utilize the Parker 400 course for the Parker 250 
race event on January 6 through 9, 2022, and for the Parker 425 race 
event on January 20 through 23, 2022. The permit is authorized from 
2015 through 2024. The Environmental Assessment analyzing these routes 
(EA #DOI-BLM-AZ-C030-2014-0040) concluded that allowing permitted 
motorized racers exclusive use of the Lake Havasu Field Office Record 
of Decision/Approved Resource Management Plan (2007) designated Parker 
400 course would mitigate safety concerns. These routes receive the 
most intense and concentrated high-speed use during the two annual 
permitted events.
    These temporary closures and restrictions affect public lands in 
and around the Parker 400 course near the communities of Parker and 
Bouse in La Paz County, Arizona. The temporary closure applies to all 
public use, including pedestrian and vehicles, unless excepted. The 
temporary closure area follows the Parker 400 course as designated in 
the 2007 Lake Havasu Resource Management Plan.
    Within the temporary restriction area, the temporary restrictions 
apply in addition to all existing regulations. The temporary 
restriction area begins on public lands east of the eastern boundary of 
the Colorado River Indian Tribe (CRIT) Reservation, along Shea Road, 
then east into Osborne Wash onto the Parker-Swansea Road to the Central 
Arizona Project (CAP) Canal, then north on the west side of the CAP 
Canal, crossing the canal on the county-maintained road, running 
northeast into Mineral Wash Canyon, then southeast on the county-
maintained road, through the four-corners intersection to the Midway 
(Pit) intersection, then east on Transmission Pass Road, through State 
Trust Land located in Butler Valley, turning north into Cunningham Wash 
to North Tank, continuing south to Transmission Pass Road and east 
(reentering public land) within two miles of Alamo Dam Road. The 
temporary restriction area boundary turns south and west onto the 
wooden power line road, onto the State Trust Land in Butler Valley, 
turning southwest into Cunningham Wash to the Graham Well, intersecting 
Butler Valley Road, then north and west on the county-maintained road 
to the ``Bouse Y'' intersection, two miles north of Bouse, Arizona. The 
temporary restriction area boundary proceeds north, paralleling the 
Bouse-Swansea Road to the Midway (Pit) intersection, then west along 
the north boundary (power line) road of the East Cactus Plain 
Wilderness Area to Parker-

[[Page 71088]]

Swansea Road. The temporary restriction area boundary turns west into 
Osborne Wash crossing the CAP Canal, along the north boundary of the 
Cactus Plain Wilderness Study Area; it continues west staying in 
Osborne Wash and crossing Shea Road along the southern boundary of 
Gibraltar Wilderness, rejoining Osborne Wash at the CRIT Reservation 
boundary.
    The temporary closures and restrictions are necessary because of 
the high-speed nature of the race event and the added safety concerns 
due to the limited visibility when there is no daylight. Roads leading 
into the public lands under the temporary closure and restrictions will 
be posted with copies of the temporary closure, temporary restrictions, 
and associated maps to notify the public. The temporary closure and 
restriction orders will be posted in the Lake Havasu Field Office and 
online at: https://www.blm.gov/office/lake-havasu-field-office. Maps of 
the affected area and other documents associated with this temporary 
closure and restriction are available at the Lake Havasu Field Office, 
1785 Kiowa Avenue, Lake Havasu City, Arizona.
    The closures and restrictions are issued under the authority of 43 
CFR 8364.1, which allows the BLM to establish closures for the 
protection of persons, property, and public lands and resources. 
Violation of any of the terms, conditions, or restrictions contained 
within this closure order may subject the violator to citation or 
arrest with a penalty of a fine or imprisonment or both as specified by 
law.
