Commerce jointly shall enter into a contract or contracts with the

owners or lessees, or both, of the mineral rights therein, and the

aforesaid contract or contracts shall provide, among other things,

that, if deposits of potash minerals or oil shall be discovered in

Government and its cooperators a royalty of not less than 2 1/2

per centum of the sale value of any potash minerals and oil

therefrom, said payments to continue until such time as the total

interfere unreasonably with the surface of the land or with the

improvements thereof, and said contract or contracts shall provide

that the United States shall not be liable for damages on account

of such reasonable use of the surface as may be necessary in the

proper conduct of the work.
