Reclamation Projects on Wedding Bell Mountain Lease Tract C-WM-17, Uranium Leasing Program
CX(s) Applied: B1.28
Location(s): Montrose County, Colorado
Office(s): Legacy Management
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Legacy Management (LM) proposes several minor reclamation activities related to abandoned mines and mine features that pose a public safety concern. In 2007, LM inherited abandoned mines as a result of re-aligning lease tract boundaries. Independent contractors associated with the lessee (Golden Eagle Uranium) and under the supervision of uranium leasing program personnel would complete the work, and all projects would be completed within approximately 2 days. The Wedding Bell Mountain Lease Tract C-WM-17 is located in southwestern Montrose County, Colorado. The total estimated surface disturbance would cover 1 acre.
