Uranium Mill in Maybell, Colorado

 
Maybell Uranium Mill location

Uranium Mill in Maybell

The Maybell Uranium Mill Site is located in Moffat County, Colorado and is covered under EEOICPA as a DOE facility for the remediation period of 1995-1998. 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 Maybell Uranium Mill are also eligible to file a Part E EEOICPA claim.

The Maybell Uranium Mill was located about 5 miles southwest of Maybell, Colorado and 25 miles west of Craig, Colorado and encompasses about 182 acres. Maybell processed about 2.6 million tons of uranium ore from 1957-1964

During its 7 years of operations, this uranium mill processed about 2.6 million tons of ore. This ore processing is covered under the auspices of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act and is 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 mill from May 1995 through September 1998. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA. (credit DOE)

The September 1982, History of Domestic Uranium Procurement under US AEC Contracts, Final Report, pages A-21 to A-23 extensively describes the work done at Maybell Uranium Mill.
