Any or all of the above-described lands may be exchanged if the values are equal. If the values are unequal, either party may equalize the values by making a payment in cash, not to exceed 25% of the value of the lands transferred out of Federal ownership.
As currently assembled, the estimated values of the Federal and non-Federal lands are unequal and are not within 25% of the value of the Federal lands. Also, the two leased area parcels described above are administrative sites located outside the boundaries of the Inyo NF, and inclusion of such parcels in this exchange is not authorized under the General Exchange Act. Legislation is proposed in Congress to allow this land exchange to proceed with a cash payment by the non-Federal party that exceeds 25% of the Federal land value, and to include the two non-Federal parcels located outside the Inyo NF boundary.
The FS proposes to acquire land with floodplains associated with: Clavey R. and Rock Cr., Little Reynolds Cr., Looney Cr., and an unnamed stream tributary to Bourland Cr. (Stanislaus NF); an unnamed stream tributary to Hungry Cr. (Plumas NF); Gable Cr., Pine Cr., Chidago Canyon Cr. and unnamed tributaries to it, an unnamed stream tributary to Mono Lake, and unnamed streams associated with Watterson Meadow (Inyo NF); Martin Cr. (Eldorado NF). There are no floodplains associated with the Federal lands.
The Federal lands have been segregated from appropriation under the public land laws and mineral laws for a period not to exceed 5 years from the date of the publication of this notice
The FS is analyzing the environmental and other effects of this land exchange under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). A decision to complete the exchange will be based on overall public benefits. A Proposed Action describing the exchange, along with other project maps and documents are available at http://www.fs.fed.us/nepa/nepa_test/fs-usda-pop.html?project=30428. These documents are also available for viewing at the Supervisor's Offices of the four affected Forests: Eldorado NF, 100 Forni Road, Placerville, CA 95667; Inyo NF, 351 Pacu Lane, Bishop, CA 93514; Stanislaus NF, 19777 Greenley Road, Sonora, CA 95370; Plumas NF, 159 Lawrence Street, Quincy, CA 95971.

Notice of Proposed Action
The Mt. Hough Ranger District is seeking public input on issuing a Plan of Operations for mining exploration. The Plan of Operations would allow operator James Moffat to conduct exploratory mining activities on National Forest System lands. The operator's proposal includes re-establishing and re-timbering the existing portal and drift at the Golden Rivers #1 mine site. Seismic sensor tests would be performed to identify the old river channel and establish core drilling and drill pad locations. The proposal also includes refurbishing the existing wash plant and shop. Rail trestle from the drift opening to the wash plant and tailings dump would be restored. Existing debris on site would be removed to a local landfill. Operations at the site are contingent upon opening up the existing road. Road work would include removal of downed logs, brushing and road repair in sloughed off areas. The location of the proposed exploration is Seneca; T26N, R8E, Sections 17 & 20, MDBM.
This plan would be valid for a period of one (1) year.
This comment period is intended to provide those interested or affected by this proposal an opportunity to make their concerns known prior to a decision being made by the Responsible Official.
