Editor's note: The mineral-leasing regulations in 11 AAC 82, 11 AAC 83, 11 AAC 84, 11 AAC 86 and 11 AAC 88, effective September 5, 1974, and distributed in Alaska Administrative Register 51, constitute a comprehensive reorganization and revision of this material, and thus the history line at the end of each section does not reflect the history of the provisions before September 5, 1974, and the section numbering may or may not be related to the numbering before that date.
