Order

    By virtue of the authority vested in the Secretary of the Interior
by Section 204 of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976,
43 U.S.C. 1714 (2000), it is ordered as follows:
    1. The withdrawal established by the Executive Order dated July 19,
1912, which withdrew public and National Forest System lands for Coal
Reserve Montana No. 9, is hereby revoked in its entirety. The area
comprises approximately 42,477 acres in Missoula County.
    2. At 9 a.m. on July 27, 2007, subject to valid existing rights,
the provisions of existing withdrawals, other segregations of record,
and the requirements of applicable law, the public lands referenced in
Paragraph 1 shall be opened to the operation of the public land laws
generally and the National Forest System lands shall be opened to such
forms of disposition as may by law be made of National Forest System
lands. All valid applications received at or prior to 9 a.m. on July
27, 2007, shall be considered as simultaneously filed at that time.
Those received thereafter shall be considered in the order of filing.
    3. At 9 a.m. on July 27, 2007, the lands referenced in Paragraph 1
shall be opened to location and entry under the United States mining
laws for nonmetalliferous minerals, subject to valid existing rights,
the provisions of existing withdrawals, other segregations of record,
and the requirements of applicable law. Appropriation of the lands
under the general mining laws for nonmetalliferous mining prior to the
date and time of restoration is unauthorized. Any such attempted
appropriation, including attempted adverse possession under 30 U.S.C.
38 (2000), shall vest no rights against the United States. Acts
required to establish a location and to initiate a right of possession
are governed by State law where not in conflict with Federal law. The
Bureau of Land Management will not intervene in disputes between rival
locators over possessory rights since Congress has provided for such
determinations in local courts.

    Dated: April 20, 2007.
C. Stephen Allred,
Assistant Secretary--Land and Minerals Management.
