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.
