The United States Steel Corporation, Atlantic City Project Records contain primarily the files of the Engineering Department of Atlantic City Ore Operations, a taconite ore processing facility that was located in Fremont County, Wyoming, from 1960 to 1984. The Engineering Department was divided into three sub-groups: Project Engineering, responsible for all policy and procedure requirements for long and short range facility planning, budgeting, and property; Facilities Engineering, responsible for designing and revising facilities, preparing equipment and facilities specifications, and construction progress and safety inspections; and Mining Engineering, whose principle objective was to acquire pertinent data on the ore deposit and develop the Mining Plan. The files are arranged in fourteen series. Series V, Legal Files, contains agreements (other than those with the utility companies), copies of state laws, rules and regulations, and standards, and patents applied for and those received for employee inventions. There is also information on the program for reclamation on forest service lands and annual report data required for the Open Cut Land Reclamation Act permits held at Atlantic City.
