Uranium Mill No. 1 in Slick Rock
Slick Rock East is a DOE site from 1995-1996 and workers are eligible to file claims under Part B and Part E. Remediation workers for these years are eligible to file Part B and Part E claims. Workers covered by RECA 5 (Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA)) at Slick Rock 1 Uranium Mill are also eligible to file a Part E EEOICPA claim.
This mill extracted radium salts and
vanadium from locally mined ores between 1942 and 1943.
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 Uranium Mill No. 1 in Slick Rock from 1995-1996.
DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this
remediation are covered under EEOICPA. (credit DOE)
