INDIAN LANDS EXCEPTED

Commenting on this section and sections 72 to 76 of this title

the Department of the Interior says:

"While there may be some Indian lands still subject to coal entry

by virtue of the provisions of law opening such lands to entry, the

coal land laws generally were superseded by the leasing Act of Feb.

25, 1920, 41 Stat. 437 [section 181 et seq. of this title], and it

is at least questionable whether the coal land laws should be

carried into the Code."

proof of compliance with the laws under which such lands are

reservation to the United States of all coal in said lands, and the

right to prospect for, mine, and remove the same. The coal deposits

in such lands shall be subject to disposal by the United States in

accordance with the provisions of the coal land laws in force at

the time of such disposal, but no person shall enter upon said

lands to prospect for, or mine and remove coal therefrom, without

previous consent of the owner under such patent, except upon such

conditions as to security for and payment of all damages to such

owner caused thereby as may be determined by a court of competent

jurisdiction. The owner under such patent shall have the right to

mine coal for use on the land for domestic purposes prior to the

disposal by the United States of the coal deposit. Nothing herein

contained shall be held to affect or abridge the right of any

locator, selector, or entryman to a hearing for the purpose of

by him. Such locator, selector, or entryman who has made or shall

make final proof showing good faith and satisfactory compliance

with the law under which his land is claimed shall be entitled to a

patent without reservation unless at the time of such final proof

and entry it shall be shown that the land is chiefly valuable for

coal.

-STATUTE-

Upon satisfactory proof of full compliance with the provisions of

the laws under which entry is made, and of sections 83 to 85 of

this title, the entryman shall be entitled to a patent to the land

entered by him, which patent shall contain a reservation to the

United States of all the coal in the lands so patented, together

with the right to prospect for, mine, and remove the same. The coal

deposits in such lands shall be subject to disposal by the United

States in accordance with the provisions of the coal-land laws in

force at the time of such disposal. Any person qualified to acquire

coal deposits or the right to mine and remove the coal under the

laws of the United States shall have the right, at all times, to

enter upon the lands selected, entered, or patented, as provided by

sections 83 to 85 of this title, for the purpose of prospecting for

coal thereon upon the approval by the Secretary of the Interior of

a bond or undertaking to be filed with him as security for the

payment of all damages to the crops and improvements on such lands

by reason of such prospecting. Any person who has acquired from the

United States the coal deposits in any such land, or the right to

mine or remove the same, may reenter and occupy so much of the

surface thereof as may be required for all purposes reasonably

incident to the mining and removal of the coal therefrom, and mine

and remove the coal, upon payment of the damages caused thereby to

the owner thereof, or upon giving a good and sufficient bond or

undertaking in an action instituted in any competent court to

ascertain and fix said damages. The owner under such limited patent

shall have the right to mine coal for use upon the land for

domestic purposes at any time prior to the disposal by the United

States of the coal deposits. Nothing herein contained shall be held

to deny or abridge the right to present and have prompt

consideration of applications to locate, enter, or select, under

such coal deposits are then subject to disposition, upon the

approval by the Secretary of the Interior of a bond or undertaking

deposits. Nothing herein contained shall be held to deny or abridge

the right to present and have prompt consideration of applications

-STATUTE-

Upon satisfactory proof of full compliance with the provisions of

the laws under which the location, selection, entry, or purchase is

made, the locator, selector, entryman, or purchaser shall be

entitled to a patent to the land located, selected, entered, or

purchased, which patent shall contain a reservation to the United

States of the deposits on account of which the lands so patented

were withdrawn or classified or reported as valuable, together with

the right to prospect for, mine, and remove the same, such deposits

to be subject to disposal by the United States only as shall be

hereafter expressly directed by law: Provided, however, That all

mineral deposits heretofore or hereafter reserved to the United

States under sections 121 to 123 of this title which are subject,

at the time of application for patent, to valid and subsisting

rights acquired by discovery and location under the mining laws of

the United States made prior to the date of the Mineral Leasing Act

of February 25, 1920 [30 U.S.C. 181 et seq.], shall hereafter be

subject to disposal to the holders of those valid and subsisting

rights by patent under the mining laws of the United States in

force at the time of such disposal. Any person qualified to acquire

the reserved deposits may enter upon said lands with a view of

prospecting for the same upon the approval by the Secretary of the

Interior of a bond or undertaking to be filed with him as security

for the payment of all damages to the crops and improvements on

such lands by reason of such prospecting, the measure of any such

damage to be fixed by agreement of parties or by a court of

competent jurisdiction. Any person who has acquired from the United

States the title to or the right to mine and remove the reserved

deposits, should the United States dispose of the mineral deposits

in lands, may reenter and occupy so much of the surface thereof as

may be required for all purposes reasonably incident to the mining

and removal of the minerals therefrom, and mine and remove such

minerals, upon payment of damages caused thereby to the owner of

the land, or upon giving a good and sufficient bond or undertaking

therefor in an action instituted in any competent court to

ascertain and fix said damages. Nothing herein contained shall be

held to deny or abridge the right to present and have prompt

consideration of applications to locate, select, enter, or

purchase, under the land laws of the United States, lands which

have been withdrawn or classified as phosphate, nitrate, potash,

oil, gas, or asphaltic mineral lands, with a view of disproving

such classification and securing patent without reservation, nor

shall persons who have located, selected, entered, or purchased

lands subsequently withdrawn, or classified as valuable for said

mineral deposits, be debarred from the privilege of showing, at any

time before final entry, purchase, or approval of selection or

location, that the lands entered, selected, or located are in fact

nonmineral in character.
