Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Montana Guard plans ordnance removal
State Guard gears up for ordnance removal

Helena Independent Record (MT)
October 4, 2005

Just beyond the creep of development in the North Hills, a team of ordnance technicians are working to rid a 50-year-old impact zone of unexploded rounds ranging from artillery shells to armor-piercing projectiles.

In a staging area set about a half-mile from the Diamond Springs Road Impact Area, teams with the Montana Air and Army National Guard braved a cold October chill Monday gearing up for this latest round of ordnance removal.

A similar process was carried out near here in 1997 when the Guard initiated a remediation project after reviewing the area's history as a firing range, one that lasted until 1960.

In that sweep, according to archives, technicians removed 10 unexploded rounds lying 18 inches below the surface.
