Public Land Order No. 7698; Modification of Secretarial Orders Dated July 6, 1925 and April 1, 1941; Utah
This order establishes a 20-year term for two Secretarial Orders which withdrew lands from surface entry and mining and reserved them on behalf of the Bureau of Reclamation for the Salt Lake Basin and Gooseberry Projects. The lands, which currently aggregate approximately 6,768 acres after a previous partial revocation, are still needed for the purpose for which they were withdrawn. The lands will remain withdrawn from surface entry and mining but not from mineral and geothermal leasing or mineral material sales.
