Fremont Nat. Forest Uranium Mines (USDA)

This site is known as the White King/Lucky Lass Superfund site.

The White King/Lucky Lass Superfund site was listed on EPA’s National Priorities List in April 1995. White King and Lucky Lass, two abandoned uranium mines are located approximately one mile apart in rural Lakeview County, Oregon. Uranium mining between 1955 and the mid-1960's resulted in contamination of the site with arsenic and radionuclides. In October 2005, Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reached a $7.9 million settlement agreement with Kerr McGee Corporation, Western Nuclear Corporation and Fremont Lumber to clean up the site according to the 2001 Record of Decision.
