Gunnison Uranium Mill Site, Colorado

Former 61.5-acre uranium mill site, active from 1958 until 1962. As part of the subsequent clean-up process, around 39 acres worth of radioactive mill tailings had to be removed, a process which took from 1992 to 1995 to complete. This undertaking was part of the federal Uranium Mill Tailings Remedial Act Project. Much of the material was moved to a disposal site six miles east of town.
