The Bureau of Land Management has tentatively scheduled a geothermal lease sale for August 2022 and opened the nomination window.

The nomination window for the BLM Nevada State Office Geothermal Lease Sale tentatively scheduled for August 2022 is now open.

Land nominations must be submitted on Department of the Interior (DOI), BLM Form 3203-1, and comply with 43 CFR 3203 (72 FR 24406, May 2, 2007). Please refer to these regulations for nomination requirements regarding maximum acreage, acceptable land descriptions, and nominating parcels as a block. These regulations may be found at under Title 43, Volume 2, Chapter II, Part 3200.

Nominations are not automatically placed on a sale when received, and BLM cannot guarantee that the nominated lands will always be included on a particular sale notice. The parcels must be reviewed for availability, as well as environmental and cultural concerns, prior to being placed on a sale. Sale parcels will normally be configured as requested; however, BLM reserves the right to adjust the parcel size and configuration as needed.

A payment of $125/tract nomination fee plus $0.12 per acre of lands nominated is due by December 8, 2021 and must be delivered to:
