In order to be eligible for conveyance, the parcels must difficult to efficiently administer because of size, shape, or location; be occupied or able to be occupied and used as an integral part of lands by the adjoining owner; and not exceed 40 acres in size, when sold in aggregate. It has been determined that the three subject mineral survey fractions lack legal access and/or have limited access across steep terrain, are irregularly shaped, have lost their National Forest character, cannot be efficiently administered and managed by the Forest Service; and cannot be made available for widespread use by the general public. However, the subject mineral survey fractions can be used as an integral part of the Applicant’s adjoining ownership. Both are determined to be eligible for conveyance. An appraisal will be prepared to establish market value.
