SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction The NRC is considering renewal of CBR’s Source Materials License SUA– 1534 for continued uranium production operations and ISR of uranium at the Crow Butte Project in Crawford, Nebraska. The applicant is proposing continued ISR operations and processing materials into yellowcake to be shipped for conversion. The NRC staff has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed license renewal, in accordance with the requirements in Part 51 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). The NRC staff has also completed a safety evaluation of the proposed license renewal, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 40, and the results of the safety evaluation are documented in a separate Safety Evaluation Report (SER), ADAMS Accession No. ML14149A433. If approved, the NRC will issue the renewed license following the publication of this notice. The new license will also be made publicly available in ADAMS. II. Environmental Assessment Summary On November 27, 2007, CBR submitted an application to the NRC to extend the current NRC License SUA– 1534 for an additional 10 years of operation (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML073480266, ML073480272, ML073480274, and ML073480267). The proposed action would permit CBR to continue ISR operations and yellowcake production at the CBR facility. The ISR operations require an extraction step and a uranium recovery step. Extraction is accomplished by installing a series of injection wells through which barren lixiviant (a mixture of groundwater charged with oxygen and bicarbonate) is pumped into an underground geological formation containing uranium deposits (the ore body). Corresponding production wells and pumps promote flow through the ore body and allow for the collection of uranium-rich pregnant lixiviant. Uranium is removed from the pregnant lixiviant by ion exchange, and then from the ion exchange resin by elution. After the uranium is removed, the lixiviant can then be recharged and E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1
