The 850-acre site is located 1.25 miles northwest of Olaton in east-central Ohio County, Kentucky. Approximately 120 additional acres are a former mine area and are located underground. The Rough River borders the Site to the north, Underwood Road borders the Site to the south, a residence borders the Site to the east and agricultural land borders the Site to the west. There are approximately 56 residences within a 1-mile radius of the property. Logging operations have taken place on the site property and several logging roads remain on Site. Fencing surrounds the Site and restricts access to the mineshaft area. From the late 1950s until about 1978, Fort Hartford Coal Company removed limestone from the mine. In 1981, Barmet Aluminum Corporation contracted with the Fort Hartford Coal Company to store salt cake fines (SCFs), a byproduct of Barmet Aluminum Corporation's aluminum recycling operation at another facility, in the Site’s underground mine area. From 1981 until 1991, Barmet Aluminum Corporation delivered 500 tons of SCFs per day to the site. In total, Barmet Aluminum Corporation placed approximately one-half million tons of SCFs on site. In 1990, EPA listed the Site on the NPL. Site PRP Commonwealth Aluminum Concast, Inc. owns the Site. The Site is not currently in use.
