Lowman Uranium MillUranium Mill in Lowman

The Lowman Uranium Mill is a DOE facility for 1992 and 1994 to the present so workers are eligible to file for Part B and Part E claims.

From 1955 to 1960 columbite/euxenite and monazite concentrates were separated from placer ore. These milling operations are covered under the auspices of the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act and are not separately covered under EEOICPA. However, DOE environmental remediation contractors performed remediation Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (Public Law 95-604) at this location in 1992. The remediation involved cleanup of contaminants left over from operation of a mechanical concentrator for extraction of uranium and thorium from sand at this location. In 1998 DOE constructed a water diversion system in furtherance of environmental remediation goals. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation and construction are covered under EEOICPA. Additionally, in 1994 ownership of the property was transferred to DOE.
