Introduction On March 25, 2005, the Petrotomics Company (Petrotomics) transferred ownership of the Shirley Basin South uranium mill tailings site in Shirley Basin, Wyoming to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), as required by 10 CFR part 40, appendix A, criterion 11, prior to termination of Petrotomics’ specific license. Subsequently, by letter dated May 12, 2005, the DOE submitted the final Long-Term Surveillance Plan (LTSP) for the Shirley Basin South site for review by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). A correction to one page of the LTSP was provided to the NRC in a DOE letter dated June 1, 2005. Based on the review of the LTSP, the NRC has determined that the LTSP satisfies the requirements in 10 CFR part 40, appendix A, criterion 12, and § 40.28 for the long-term surveillance of a tailings disposal site. Accordingly, notice is hereby given that PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the NRC has accepted the LTSP for the Shirley Basin South site. This acceptance establishes the DOE as the long-term custodian and caretaker of the Shirley Basin South site under the general license specified in 10 CFR 40.28. In a concurrent action, the NRC has terminated Petrotomics’ specific Source Materials License SUA–551 for the Shirley Basin South site. These actions complete all requirements for closure of the Shirley Basin South site under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 1978, as amended. These actions do not require an environmental assessment as they are categorically excluded under 10 CFR 51.22(c)(11). II. Further Information The NRC has prepared correspondence which documents the actions that establish the DOE as the long-term custodian of the Shirley Basin South site under the general license specified in 10 CFR 40.28 and terminate Petrotomics’ specific Source Materials License SUA–551 for the Shirley Basin South site. In accordance with 10 CFR 2.390 of the NRC’s ‘‘Rules of Practice,’’ copies of this correspondence, as well as the Shirley Basin South LTSP submitted by DOE letters dated May 12 and June 1, 2005, are available electronically at the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room at http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/ adams.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Introduction

    On March 25, 2005, the Petrotomics Company (Petrotomics) 
transferred ownership of the Shirley Basin South uranium mill tailings 
site in Shirley Basin, Wyoming to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), 
as required by 10 CFR part 40, appendix A, criterion 11, prior to 
termination of Petrotomics' specific license. Subsequently, by letter 
dated May 12, 2005, the DOE submitted the final Long-Term Surveillance 
Plan (LTSP) for the Shirley Basin South site for review by the U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). A correction to one page of the 
LTSP was provided to the NRC in a DOE letter dated June 1, 2005. Based 
on the review of the LTSP, the NRC has determined that the LTSP 
satisfies the requirements in 10 CFR part 40, appendix A, criterion 12, 
and Sec.  40.28 for the long-term surveillance of a tailings disposal 
site. Accordingly, notice is hereby given that the NRC has accepted the 
LTSP for the Shirley Basin South site. This acceptance establishes the 
DOE as the long-term custodian and caretaker of the Shirley Basin South 
site under the general license specified in 10 CFR 40.28. In a 
concurrent action, the NRC has terminated Petrotomics' specific Source 
Materials License SUA-551 for the Shirley Basin South site. These 
actions complete all requirements for closure of the Shirley Basin 
South site under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act of 
1978, as amended. These actions do not require an environmental 
assessment as they are categorically excluded under 10 CFR 
51.22(c)(11).

II. Further Information
