This order revokes in their entirety two Secretarial Orders and two Executive Orders insofar as they affect the remaining 134,960 acres of lands withdrawn for Federal coal classification purposes. The lands are located within the Coronado and Sitgreaves National Forests and the San Carlos Indian Reservation. The withdrawals are no longer needed as the United States Geological Survey has classified the lands as Non-Coal lands and has recommended revocation of the withdrawals. The lands located within the National Forests will be opened to nonmetalliferous mining and to such forms of disposition as may by law be made of National Forest System lands. The lands located within the Indian Reservation will not be opened since reservation lands are not subject to entry under the general land laws or the United States mining laws.
