SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following described public lands in

sec. 8, SEÂ¼SEÂ¼;
sec. 28, EÂ½NEÂ¼;
sec. 33, SEÂ¼SWÂ¼, NÂ½SEÂ¼, SWÂ¼SEÂ¼.
The area described contains 280 acres, according to the official plat
of the survey of the said land, on file with the BLM.
The proposed sale is in conformance with the BLM Price Field Office
Resource Management Plan (PFO RMP) that was approved in October 2008.
The parcels are identified for disposal in the PFO RMP on page 7 of
Appendix R-11. The lands would be offered to Hunt Consolidated, Inc.
on a non-competitive basis due to the lack of public access and their
ownership of the surrounding lands, pursuant to 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(4).
Conveyance of the identified public land would be subject to valid
existing rights and encumbrances of record. Conveyance of any mineral
interests pursuant to Section 209 of FLPMA will be analyzed during
processing of the proposed sale. On February 5, 2013, the
above-described land will be segregated from all forms of
appropriation under the public land laws, including the mining laws
and the mineral leasing laws, except for the sale provisions of the
FLPMA. The lands were previously segregated from appropriation under
the mining laws pursuant to Executive Order 5327 and Public Land Order
Executive Order 5327 was revoked by PLO 7725 to the extent that the
withdrawn lands were opened to operation of the public land laws and
development activities under Section 321 of the Mineral Leasing Act,
but not to operation of the 1872 Mining Law. Until completion of the
sale action, the BLM is no longer accepting land use applications
affecting the identified public lands. The temporary segregation will
terminate upon issuance of a patent, publication in the Federal
Register of a termination of the segregation,
or on March 22, 2015, unless extended by the BLM Utah State Director
in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the termination date.
For a period until March 22, 2013, interested parties and the general
public may submit in writing any comments concerning the land being
considered for sale, including notification of any encumbrances or
other claims relating to the identified land, to the Field Manager,
BLM Price Field Office, at the above address. In order to ensure
consideration in the environmental analysis of the proposed sale,
comments must be in writing and postmarked
or delivered within 45 days of the initial date of publication of this
notice. Electronic mail (email) will also be accepted and should be
sent to BLM_UT_PR_Comments@blm.gov with "Price Land Sale" inserted in
the subject line. Comments, including names and street addresses of
respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Price
Field Office during regular business hours, except holidays.
Before including your address, telephone number, email address, or
other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised
that your entire comment-including your personal identifying
information-may be made publicly available at any time. While you can
