BLM ELKO LAND SALE RESULTS
Two of five parcels of public land in Elko County, Nevada, offered for sale under the
provisions of the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act of 2000 were sold at auction at the
BLM Elko Field Office on September 15, 2004.
A 40-acre parcel was offered for $4,600 and sold for $16,500, and a 254.4-acre parcel
was offered for $59,000 and sold for $62,000. The three unsold parcels totaling 352 acres will
be offered at a sale scheduled in Las Vegas in February 2005.
“There has been a lot of interest in the amount of public land s in northeastern Nevada
versus private lands,” said BLM Elko Field Manager Helen Hankins. “We made a commitment
to offer some public lands parcels for sale in Elko County and we did.”
Additional public land parcels in Elko County will be offered for sale in Elko in late
2005. For more information about future lands sales, contact Jason Allen at (775) 753-0235 or
