Magnus Brass

Magnus Brass was an AWE facility from 1854-1958 so workers are eligible to file Part B claims.

The site machined various forms of uranium metal under subcontract to the National Lead Company (Fernald). The work was performed at two locations: Reading Road (from December 1954 through November 1955) and West 7th Street (from December 1955 through December 1957). Total production machining was approximately two or three hundred billets.

During the period of residual contamination, as designated by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and as noted in the dates above, employees of subsequent owners and operators of this facility are also covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act.
