The American Manufacturing Company of Texas (AMCOT) conducted specialized tube elongation and billet piercing tests on uranium metal for National Lead Company of Ohio (Fernald). The tube elongation tests were conducted from July to September 1961 and involved approximately 7 tons of uranium. The billet piercing tests were conducted from June to September 1962 and involved approximately 23 tons of uranium. Both NLO and AMCOT employees participated in the tests.
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.

More Information

This facility is no longer covered under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act. A determination has been made that it does not meet the legal or regulatory definition of a covered Department of Energy or Atomic Weapons Employer facility. Compensable claims reported for this facility are the result of covered employment at a different qualifying work site.

Medina Modification Center

The Medina Modification Center was established in 1958 for component testing, modification, repairs, and refinements. It operated until the early spring of 1966, at which point its functions were transferred to Burlington and Pantex.
Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site.

More Information

 In the 1950s, the Atomic Energy Commission began manufacturing high explosives for nuclear weapons at the Pantex Plant (Pantex). Today, Pantex continues to fabricate high explosives and assemble nuclear weapons. The principal operations at this site, however, are the dismantling of retired nuclear weapons and the maintenance of the nation's nuclear weapons stockpile. Pantex, which is operated by DOE's Office of Defense Programs, is the only facility in the United States that performs these operations.
Throughout the course of its operations, the potential for beryllium exposure existed at this site, due to beryllium use, residual contamination, and decontamination activities.

 In 1951, AEC and AEC contractor personnel conducted tests at Sutton, Steele, and Steele, Inc. which were aimed at devising means of recovering uranium from low grade wastes and residues. The tests were to determine the feasibility of separating fused dolomite from magnesium fluoride slag and uranium. In 1959, National Lead of Ohio (Fernald) personnel evaluated Sutton, Steele, and Steele's dry tabling equipment for the separation of normal uranium shot.

Texas City Chemicals produced uranium by recovery of U3O8 from a phosphate fertilizer production plant. The AEC contracted with Texas City Chemicals for the recovery of uranium which was ultimately used in weapons production.
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.

More Information

 This uranium mill was operated from 191 to 1973 and then some processing of the tailings was performed between 1978 and 1982. 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 Falls City from January 1992 through June 1994. DOE and DOE contractor employees who performed this remediation are covered under EEOICPA.
