  • William Paul Robinson
Conference paper


This memo summarizes my presentation in Birkenfeld November 3,1989 concerning tailings isolation options at the Ellweiler uranium mill tailings pile. This analysis of the extent of the potential contamination problem and identification of a proposed final waste isolation concept for the Ellweiler tailings has been prepared after a review of selected geologic documents describing the Ellweiler site and materials and a visit to the tailings site, the Ellweiler uraniun mine and the kaolin clay mine south of Ellweiler village.
