SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES DATES: 17:22 May 23, 2008 The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has received, by letter dated November 27, 2007, a license amendment application from Crow Butte Resources, Inc. (CBR), requesting renewal of its Source Materials License for its in situ leach (ISL) uranium recovery facility located in Crawford, Nebraska. License No. SUA–1534 authorizes the licensee to operate an ISL uranium recovery facility to produce yellowcake. Specifically, the application requests that NRC renew CBR’s current license for a standard 10year period. An NRC administrative review, documented in a letter to CBR dated March 28, 2008, found the application acceptable to begin a technical review. If the NRC approves the renewal request, the approval will be documented in an amendment to NRC License No. SUA–1534. However, before approving the proposed amendment, the NRC will need to make the findings required by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and NRC’s regulations. These findings will be reflected in a Safety Evaluation Report and in a separate environmental review document. This license renewal application contains Sensitive Unclassified Non-Safeguards Information (SUNSI) in the form of cultural and historic resource information. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing [Docket No. 40–8943] VerDate Aug<31>2005 I. Introduction Jkt 214001 The NRC hereby provides notice that this is a proceeding on an application for a license amendment regarding renewal of Source Materials License No. SUA–1534 issued to Crow Butte Resources for its ISL uranium recovery facility in Crawford, Nebraska. Any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding, and who desires to participate as a party, must file a request for a hearing and a specification of the contentions which the person seeks to have litigated in the hearing, in accordance with the NRC E-Filing rule, which the NRC promulgated in August, 2007, 72 FR 49139 (August 28, 2007). The E-Filing rule requires participants to submit and serve documents over the Internet, or in some cases, to mail copies on electronic storage media. Participants may not submit paper copies of their filings unless they seek a waiver in accordance with the procedures described below. To comply with the procedural requirements of E-Filing, at least ten (10) days prior to the filing deadline, the petitioner/requestor must contact the Office of the Secretary by e-mail at PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 hearingdocket@nrc.gov, or by calling (301) 415–1677, to request: (1) A digital Identification (ID) certificate, which allows the participant (or its counsel or representative) to digitally sign documents and access the E-Submittal server for any proceeding in which it is participating; and/or (2) creation of an electronic docket for the proceeding (even in instances in which the petitioner/requester (or its counsel or representative) already holds an NRCissued digital ID certificate). Each petitioner/requester will need to download the Workplace Forms ViewerTM to access the Electronic Information Exchange (EIE), a component of the E-Filing system. The Workplace Forms ViewerTM is free and is available at http://www.nrc.gov/sitehelp/e-submittals/install-viewer.html. Information about applying for a digital ID certificate is available on NRC’s public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/ site-help/e-submittals/applycertificates.html. Once a petitioner/requester has obtained a digital ID certificate, has a docket created, and downloaded the EIE viewer, it can then submit a request for hearing or petition for leave to intervene. Submissions should be in Portable Document Format (PDF) in accordance with NRC guidance available on the NRC public Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/site-help/esubmittals.html. A filing is considered complete at the time the filer submits its documents through EIE. To be timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the EIE system no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the due date. Upon receipt of a transmission, the E-Filing system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an e-mail notice confirming receipt of the document. The EIE system also distributes an e-mail notice that provides access to the document to the NRC Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the documents on those participants separately.
