with the applicable sale regulations and authorities governing a bid and subsequent issuance of a patent. I certify that any bid submitted by
the undersigned, either on their own behalf or on behalf of the principal party named below, is a good faith statement of intention by the

deposit of the high bid amount for that sale parcel by 3:00 p.m. on the day of the auction. The undersigned, and the principal party if other

made the high bid on the parcel offered for sale
. Further, the undersigned and the principal party understand that if payment for the 20%
deposit is not received by the specified time, the BLM may cancel the sale of that parcel and, further, if the final payment for the sale parcel
