A qualifying mineral or geothermal interest means an interest in any mineral or geothermal deposit located on eligible federal land that constitutes the transferor’s entire interest in the deposit.

The transferor’s entire interest in such deposit does not fail to be a qualifying mineral or geothermal interest solely because the transferor has retained an interest in other deposits, even if the other deposits are contiguous with such certain deposit and were acquired by the transferor along with such certain deposit in a single conveyance.
