SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following-described public land in 
Campbell County, Wyoming, is proposed for direct sale, subject to the 
applicable provisions of Sections 203 and 209 of the Federal Land 
Policy and Management Act of 1976 (FLPMA) and 43 CFR Parts 2711 and 

Sixth Principal Meridian, Wyoming

T. 56 N., R. 73 W.,
    Sec. 8, lot 17.

    The area described contains 4.15 acres, according to the 
official plat of the survey of the said land, on file with the BLM.

    The proposed (non-competitive) direct sale is in conformance with 
the BLM Buffalo Resource Management Plan (RMP) approved on October 4, 
1985. The parcel is identified for disposal in the RMP Record of 
Decision, pages 13 and 14 and Map 5 because the lands are isolated 
public lands surrounded by private lands under single ownership. These 
isolated lands are difficult and uneconomic for the Federal Government 
to manage. Additionally, Maintenance Plan Change 20120720 was 
added to comply with guidelines of the Department of the Interior and 
the BLM. The Maintenance Plan Change updated the land disposal map and 
included a text version of all legal descriptions for parcels 
identified for consideration for disposal. The land, if offered, would 
be through a (non-competitive) direct sale to the Craig G. and Peggy S. 
Means Revocable Trust as the final resolution to the unauthorized use, 
pursuant to 43 CFR 2710.0-6(c)(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 2711.3-3(a)(5). In 
addition, the Craig G. and Peggy S. Means Revocable Trust are the sole 
owners of the private lands surrounding the identified parcel of 
Federal land and pursuant to 43 CFR 2710.0-6(c)(3)(iii) and 43 CFR 
2711.3-3(a)(4) a direct sale is appropriate. 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 the FLPMA, was not proposed, but would be analyzed 
during processing of the proposed sale.
    On February 4, 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. Until completion of the sale action, the BLM 
is no longer accepting land use applications affecting the identified 
public land. The temporary segregation will terminate upon issuance of 
a patent, publication in the Federal Register of a termination of the 
segregation, or February 4, 2015, unless extended by the BLM Wyoming 
State Director in accordance with 43 CFR 2711.1-2(d) prior to the 
termination date.
    For a period until March 21, 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 Buffalo 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 buffalo_wymail@blm.gov with ``Campbell County Land Sale'' inserted in the 
subject line. Comments, including names and street addresses of 
respondents, will be available for public review at the BLM Buffalo 
Field Office during regular business hours, except holidays.
    Before including your address, phone 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 may ask in your 
comment to withhold from public review your personal identifying 
information, we
