ACTION: Notice of availability. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has published a final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement for Insitu Leach Uranium Milling Facilities (GEIS), (NUREG–1910, Supplement 1) regarding the Moore Ranch In-Situ Recovery Project in Campbell County, Wyoming. By letter dated October 2, 2007, Energy Metals Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uranium One Americas (Uranium One), submitted an application to the NRC for a new source material license for the proposed Moore Ranch Project, located in southwest Campbell County, Wyoming. Uranium One is proposing to recover uranium from the Moore Ranch site using the in-situ leach (also known as the in-situ recovery [ISR]) process. In this final SEIS, the NRC staff assessed the environmental impacts from the construction, operation, aquifer restoration, and decommissioning of the proposed Moore Ranch ISR Project. In addition to the proposed action, the NRC staff assessed the no-action alternative in the final SEIS. Under this alternative, NRC would deny Uranium SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 One’s request to construct, operate, conduct aquifer restoration, and decommission an ISR facility at the Moore Ranch Project. Possible alternatives that were considered, but were eliminated from detailed analysis include: conventional mining (whether by open pit or underground techniques) and conventional milling or heap leach processing. However, given the substantial environmental impacts of these alternatives, they were not further considered. The NRC staff also evaluated alternative lixiviants, alternative wastewater disposal options, and an alternative site location within the proposed license area. For reasons discussed in the SEIS, these alternatives were also eliminated from further consideration. As discussed in Section 2.3 of the final SEIS, unless safety issues mandate otherwise, the NRC staff’s recommendation to the Commission related to the environmental aspects of the proposed action is that the source material license be issued as requested. This recommendation is based upon (1) the license application, including the environmental report submitted by Uranium One and the applicant’s supplemental letters and responses to the NRC staff’s requests for additional information; (2) consultation with Federal, State, Tribal, and local agencies; (3) the NRC staff’s independent review; (4) the NRC staff’s consideration of comments received on the draft SEIS; and (5) the assessments summarized in this SEIS.

Notice of Availability of Final Supplemental Environmental Impact 
Statement for the Moore Ranch In-situ Recovery Project in Campbell 
County, Wyoming, Supplement to the Generic Environmental Impact 
Statement for In-situ Leach Uranium Milling Facilities

AGENCY: Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

ACTION: Notice of availability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory 
Commission (NRC) has published a final Supplemental Environmental 
Impact Statement (SEIS) to the Generic Environmental Impact Statement 
for In-situ Leach Uranium Milling Facilities (GEIS), (NUREG-1910, 
Supplement 1) regarding the Moore Ranch In-Situ Recovery Project in 
Campbell County, Wyoming. By letter dated October 2, 2007, Energy 
Metals Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Uranium One Americas 
(Uranium One), submitted an application to the NRC for a new source 
material license for the proposed Moore Ranch Project, located in 
southwest Campbell County, Wyoming. Uranium One is proposing to recover 
uranium from the Moore Ranch site using the in-situ leach (also known 
as the in-situ recovery [ISR]) process. In this final SEIS, the NRC 
staff assessed the environmental impacts from the construction, 
operation, aquifer restoration, and decommissioning of the proposed 
Moore Ranch ISR Project.
    In addition to the proposed action, the NRC staff assessed the no-
action alternative in the final SEIS. Under this alternative, NRC would 
deny Uranium One's request to construct, operate, conduct aquifer 
restoration, and decommission an ISR facility at the Moore Ranch 
Project. Possible alternatives that were considered, but were 
eliminated from detailed analysis include: conventional mining (whether 
by open pit or underground techniques) and conventional milling or heap 
leach processing. However, given the substantial environmental impacts 
of these alternatives, they were not further considered. The NRC staff 
also evaluated alternative lixiviants, alternative wastewater disposal 
options, and an alternative site location within the proposed license 
area. For reasons discussed in the SEIS, these alternatives were also 
eliminated from further consideration.
    As discussed in Section 2.3 of the final SEIS, unless safety issues 
mandate otherwise, the NRC staff's recommendation to the Commission 
related to the environmental aspects of the proposed action is that the 
source material license be issued as requested. This recommendation is 
based upon (1) the license application, including the environmental 
report submitted by Uranium One and the applicant's supplemental 
letters and responses to the NRC staff's requests for additional 
information; (2) consultation with Federal, State, Tribal, and local 
agencies; (3) the NRC staff's independent review; (4) the NRC staff's 
consideration of comments received on the draft SEIS; and (5) the 
assessments summarized in this SEIS.
    The final SEIS for the Moore Ranch ISR Project may be accessed on 
the internet at https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/nuregs/staff/sr1910/s1/. Additionally, the NRC maintains an Agencywide 
Documents and Management System (ADAMS), which provides text and image 
files of the NRC's public documents. The SEIS may also be accessed
