a direct sale offer will constitute an application for conveyance of 
those mineral interests. The applicant will be required to pay a $50.00 
non-refundable filing fee for conveyance of the available mineral 
interests. The patent, when issued, will contain the following 
reservations to the United States:
    1. A right-of-way thereon for ditches or canals constructed by the 
authority of the United States, Act of August 30, 1890 (43 U.S.C. 945).
    2. All minerals shall be reserved to the United States, together 
with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove such deposits from the

Interior may prescribe and will be subject to:
    1. Those rights for highway purposes granted to Nevada Department 
of Transportation by permit no. Nev-057852 under the Act of September 
27, 1958 [23 U.S.C. 317(a)].
