Facility Description: Shattuck Chemical prepared uranium compounds and uranium oxide in the late 1950s.

Shattuck also processed refined uranium and produced natural uranium oxides on a commercial basis for the private market, and in 1963, supplied a small quantity of uranium to the Rocky Flats plant.
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.
