Interim Removal Action on Navajo Nation Lands in New Mexico

Representing Homestake Mining Company in a CERCLA interim removal action concerning the former Black Jack and Mac uranium mines on Navajo Nation lands in New Mexico.  Representation includes negotiations of an administrative order on consent and interim removal action scope of work with the United States to investigate the nature and extent of actual or threatened releases of mine-related material at these sites.  The work has culminated in the preparation of a Removal Site Evaluation, the precursor to preparation of an Engineering Evaluation/Cost Analysis concerning possible removal action alternatives at the four sites.
