Series Title : Proposed OCS Sale 58A, Visual No. 1 Covers an area extending from Mobile Bay to the Texas-Mexico border, focusing on the Gulf of Mexico.

These leases were offered by the Department of the Interior, based on the Outer Continental Shelf Land Act of 1953. This map shows tracts already leased, expired leases, and fairways and anchorage areas. Features shown along the coast include national parks, and federal and state conservation areas. See accompanying pamphlet for information about this sale, and the overlay grid map to determine the tracts available for lease. Both can be found under map # 6497.
