Mineral Leases:



Daggett County records indicate that rights-of-way for three power lines cross the larger 40 acre parcel (SW¼SE¼ of Sec. 13) of which the subject property is a small portion of. These rights-of-way were issued in the 1950’s and are currently recorded in Daggett County records as follows:

Entry No. 12994, Book 34, Page 328, recorded 2/3/1984 by Bridger Valley Electric Assn.
Entry No. 12982, Book 34, Page 316, recorded 2/3/1984 by Bridger Valley Electric Assn.
Entry No. 12980, Book 34, Page 313, recorded 2/3/1984 by Bridger Valley Electric Assn.

The Trust Lands Administration believes that these rights-of-way likely do not impact the subject property as no overhead power lines are present on the property and electrical service to surrounding homes is provided via buried lines in the city streets. However, interested parties are encouraged to do their own due diligence regarding these potential encumbrances on the property.

The property will be conveyed subject to all valid existing rights.
