Sherman <br />Executive Director <br />Ronald W. Cattany <br />Division Director <br />Natural Resource Trustee <br />On June 23, 2008 the Division of Reclamation Mining and Safety (DRMS) received Yellowcake <br />Mining, Inc. correspondence lifting the confidentiality provisions as required under SB-08-228. JBR <br />also submitted and the Division received electronic copies of the non-confidential application forms on <br />June 24, 2008. Therefore, the above referenced Notices of Intent are SB-08-228 compliant. The 228 <br />compliance was the only outstanding issue noted in the June 17 cover letter sent with the site inspection <br />reports. <br />Staff had begun the calculations of reclamation liability. The first initial calculations done by staff <br />varied from those submitted by JBR. JBR used some tasks and costs not necessarily used on an average <br />Notice estimate by DRMS. These differences were resulting in the Division's estimates coming in <br />lower than those submitted with the application. Staff was beginning the process of reconciling the <br />differences with BLM concurrence when JBR contacted the Division on June 26, 2008. Based on those <br />discussions, Yellowcake Mining has opted to use the submitted reclamation liability estimates, which <br />are higher, rather than wait for staff calculations. BLM has concurred that they will accept the JBR <br />submitted estimates as well. Therefore the Uravan-Beck Drilling _projects, P-1 through P-10 as noted <br />above are considered complete. <br />Office of <br />Office of Active and Inactive Mines <br />Mined Land Reclamation Denver Grand Junction • Durango
