The NRC is accepting public comment in the form of written limited appearance statements regarding the application submitted by Powertech (USA) to the NRC requesting a license to construct and operate a proposed In-Situ Recovery (ISR) Uranium Mine in Custer and Fall River Counties, South Dakota.

The purpose of limited appearance statements is to allow members of the public who are not parties to the adjudication (licensing process) to provide the NRC Board with statements setting forth their positions or concerns on matters relating to the admitted contentions. Limited appearance statements enable members of the public to alert the Board to issues relating to the Powerech application and the admitted contentions, and they assist the Board in its consideration of these matters. Limited appearance statements will be considered by the Board, but are not under oath or affirmation and do not constitute formail testimony or evidence.

FEBRUARY 14th, 2014 is the due date for limited appearance statements on the cultural resources programmatic agreement; comments on the FEIS are due first week of March 2014.

All written limited appearance statements should be sent to the Office of the Secretary using the methods prescribed below, along with a copy to the Board Chairman. You will need to include the following information in your correspondence:

Docket No. 40-9075-MLA
ASLBP No. 10-898-02-MLA-BD01

If you use a mail program (versus a browser) on your computer to send email, you can use the following link to create an email to both the Secretary and the Chairman, including the Docket and ASLBP number.
