Document Number: 2011-9551
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-04-21
Agency: Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management
The Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Land and Minerals Management proposes to withdraw approximately 677,384 acres of public lands from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the public land laws, including the mining laws, on behalf of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to protect and preserve for a 5-year period, 24 Solar Energy Study Areas, now known as proposed Solar Energy Zones (SEZ), while they are analyzed for future solar energy development as part of the Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement for Solar Energy Development in Six Southwestern States. The lands will remain open to the mineral leasing, geothermal leasing, and mineral material laws. On June 30, 2009, a Notice of Proposed Withdrawal was published in the Federal Register (74 FR 31308), which segregated the lands from settlement, sale, location, or entry under the general land laws, including the mining laws, for a 2-year period. This new Notice slightly amends the prior proposal and provides revised legal descriptions for the proposed SEZs to include some additional lands. It also terminates the segregative effect as to lands no longer included in the proposed withdrawal.
