Ambrosia Lake Uranium Mill
Ambrosia Lake Uranium Mill is a DOE facility for July 1987-April 1989 and October 1992-July 1995 so workers are eligible to file Part B and Part E claims.
This former mill processed more than 3 million tons of uranium ore between 1958 and 1963. 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 at this location from July 1987 to April 1989 and again from October 1992 to July 1995 under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (Public Law 95-604). Environmental remediation performed at the site involved the demolition of buildings, construction of decontamination facilities, and the excavation, consolidation and encapsulation of all contaminated material on site in an engineered disposal cell. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA.
