This post is for a friend of mine who inquired about the site.
Beatty Nevada is a nuclear waste disposal site for all types of nuclear waste.
Its a nuclear waste site. i could find more but this pretty much covers it. There are some contamination in the city itself from low level radiation disposal but the high level stuff would be in a more secure location on the mountain. Byproduct material is material made in a nuclear reactor, isotopes of radiation. Radium comes under low level, which is rediculous but thats how the law was written.
