Climax Uranium Mill in Grand Junction, Colorado

 
Climax Uranium Mill

Climax Uranium Mill

Climax is a DOE site from December 1988-August 1994 so workers are eligible to file Part B and Part E claims.

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.
