Notice of Proposed Withdrawal and Transfer of Jurisdiction and Opportunity for Public Meeting; Wyoming
The United States Department of Energy has filed an application requesting the Secretary of the Interior segregate from the mining laws approximately 1,091 acres of public land associated with a proposed withdrawal and transfer of jurisdiction. The proposed withdrawal and transfer of jurisdiction will ultimately involve approximately 577 acres of public land in Fremont County, Wyoming. The remaining 514 acres will be opened to mining upon completion of a land survey to determine the boundary prior to the withdrawal and transfer of jurisdiction. The proposed withdrawal will protect public health and safety from land contaminated by previous mining and milling operations. This notice segregates the land for up to 2 years from location and entry under the United States mining laws and precludes encumbrances from activities, including location of mining claims, that would cause unnecessary cost and delay during reclamation activities prior to transfer.
