Uranium Depot at Doyle is Being Sought
Purchase, Milling Center is Proposed
March 15, 1955
A recommendation that the federal government builds a uranium purchasing and milling depot at Doyle has been introduced in the California state assembly.
Now in committee is a house resolution by Assemblywoman Pauline Davis (D-Portola) requesting Congress to provide the facility on the basis of recent discoveries of high-grade uranium in contiguous Nevada areas, the Lassen Advocate reports.
A depot in Doyle would be convenient to the Sierra Ordnance Depot centrally located in the exploration area and would provide a relatively safe and dispersed location from the national defense standpoint, the Davis proposal states.
If the assembly approves the resolution, requests for the depot construction will be made directly to President Eisenhower, Senate President Nixon, House Speaker Rayburn and each California senator and representative.
There are no uranium deposits in Nevada or California at present.
