Notes
Survey number HAER CO-42
Significance: It was incorporated in September 1913 to extract radium from domestic ores for use in career treatment and other technical studies, and in the process, to develop cost-effective methods of radium extraction. The National Radium Institute signed a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Bureau of Mines in October 1913 under which the Bureau provided technical expertise and the Institute provided funding to purchase ores and to construct and operate a radium processing plant in Denver. The Denver plant was closed in 1917 after producing 8.5 grams of radium.
