Novi Han Repository is the only existing repository in Bulgaria for the disposal of radioactive waste from nuclear applications in industry, medicine and research. The disposal vault for spent sealed sources is not designed for disposal of powerful 137 Cs and 60 Co sources. Long-lived waste from nuclear applications are also not allowed for disposal at Novi Han Repository. As an operator of Novi Han Repository the Institute for Nuclear Research and Nuclear Energy initiated a program, for assessment of the possible utilization of deep shaft Gabra for disposal of such waste. The results of the preliminary study are discussed.
