Uranium Mill in Naturita

The Naturita Uranium Mill is a DOE site for years May, 1991-November 1994 and June 1996-September 1998 and workers are eligible to file claims under Part B and Part E. 

The Naturita Processing site  is about 2 miles northwest of Naturita, Colorado and encompasses about 79 acres.    Naturita processed vanadium ore from the 1930s to 1958 and began processing uranium ore in 1942. 

This former uranium and vanadium ore processing facility processed about 704,000 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 processing site from May through November of 1994 and again from June of 1996 through September 1998. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA..
