Climax Uranium Mill
Climax Uranium Mill Site is located in Mesa County, Colorado and is covered under EEOICPA as a DOE facility for the remediation period of 1988-1994. Remediation workers for these years are eligible to file Part B and Part E claims. Workers covered by RECA 5 (Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA)) at the Climax Uranium Mill are also eligible to file a Part E EEOICPA claim.
During its 19 years of operation, the mill produced 2.2 million tons of radioactive tailings. These years of operation are covered under the auspices of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act and are not separately covered under EEOICPA. However, DOE environmental remediation contractors performed environmental remediation under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (Public Law 95-604) at this former uranium ore processing mill from at this former uranium mill from December 1988 through August 1994. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA. (credit DOE)
