PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - The Navajo Nation is considering purchasing 27 square miles (70 square kilometers) of land in the western area of Yavapai Ranch.

The Daily Courier reported (https://bit.ly/2tNaBml ) Wednesday that negotiations between the tribe and Yavapai Ranch owners are ongoing for the land that lies 13 miles (21 kilometers) south of Seligman and about 40 miles (64 kilometers) north of Prescott.

The area’s appraisal is nearly $60 million.

Ranch manager Fred Ruskin called the negotiations “kicking the tires on the west side.”

Yavapai Ranch is the largest parcel of checkerboard holdings within the boundaries of the Prescott National Forest.
