Application for Licensing for the Reno Creek In Situ Leach (ISL) 
Uranium Extraction Project in Campbell County, Wyoming, in the Federal 
Register (59 FR 16246, April 6, 1994). A Notice for Opportunity for 
Hearing was also issued in that Federal Register Notice. The 
application was submitted by Energy Fuels Nuclear, Incorporated, a 
predecessor of International Uranium (USA) Corporation.
    The NRC received a letter dated July 22, 1999, from International 
Uranium (USA) Corporation requesting that NRC, ``immediately terminate 
all review work on the Reno Creek ISL Project Source Materials License 
Application.'' The NRC considers this request a withdrawal of the 
License Application in accordance with 10 CFR 2.107. As stated in 10 
CFR 2.107(b), the withdrawal of an application does not authorize the 
removal of any document from the files of the Commission. If it desires 
to do so, International Uranium (USA) Corporation may again apply for a 
specific license for the Reno Creek ISL Project at some time in the 
future by submitting a license application in accordance with 10 CFR 
40.31.

    Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 29th Day of July 1999.

    For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
