Converse County Uranium Mill
Converse County is a DOE facility from April-September 1989 so workers are eligible to file for both Part B and Part E claims.
This mill processing uranium and vanadium ore from 1958 to 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 under the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act (Public Law 95-604) at the Uranium Mill in Converse County, known at the Spook Site, in 1989. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA.
DOE lists Converse County Uranium Mill as a covered EEOICPA facility.
NIOSH lists statistics for Converse County dose reconstructions.
