EXCERPT:


SALT LAKE CITY — The commander of an Army base in Utah, which works on how to protect troops against biological and chemical attacks, said it was on lockdown while trying to resolve a "serious concern."

Military weapons are tested at Dugway Proving Grounds, located about 85 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. Its primary mission is defending troops against biological and chemical attacks.

Colonel William E. King did not provide any details in a statement, but said food and beverages were being brought in.

"As you know measures like these (lockdown of our gates) are not taken lightly," he said, according to KSL.com. "No one is in immediate danger but these steps are required."

The gates would be re-opened "as soon as I can," he added.

Base spokeswoman Bonnie Robinson told The Associated Press early Thursday that officials hoped to have the problem resolved shortly.

VX, IUPAC name O-ethyl S-[2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl] methylphosphonothioate, is an extremely toxic substance whose only application is in chemical warfare as a nerve agent. As a chemical weapon, it is classified as a weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations in UN Resolution 687. The production and stockpiling of VX was outlawed by the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993.
The VX nerve agent is the most well-known of the V-series o

By 4:30 a.m. Thursday, normal traffic in and out of Dugway had resumed.

Dugway officials tentatively planned a Thursday afternoon news conference to discuss the lockdown.

Dugway Proving Ground was also home to the High Resolution Fly's Eye Cosmic Ray Detector, which discovered the first Ultra-high-energy cosmic ray. Dugway is home to several radio telemetry and tracking radar (i.e. RIR-777, TPQ-39 (Ver. V) and MPQ-39) sites which track national flight assets during flight tests at UTTR.

Today, people have called it "Area 52", because of the UFO's reported in that area.[citation needed]

[edit] "Dugway Sheep Kill" incidentMain article: Dugway sheep incident
In March 1968, 6,249 sheep died in Skull Valley, an area nearly thirty miles from Dugway's testing sites. When examined, the sheep were found to have been poisoned by an organophosphate chemical. The sickening of the sheep, known as the Dugway sheep incident, coincided with several open-air tests of the nerve agent VX at Dugway. Local attention focused on the Army, which initially denied that VX had caused the deaths, instead blaming the local use of organophosphate pesticides on crops. Necropsies conducted on the dead sheep later definitively identified the presence of VX. The Army never admitted liability, but did pay the ranchers for their losses. On the official record, the claim was for 4,372 "disabled" sheep, of which about 2,150 were either killed outright by the VX exposure or were so critically injured that they needed to be euthanized on-site by veterinarians. Another 1,877 sheep were "temporarily" injured, or showed no signs of injury but were not marketable due to their potential exposure. All of the exposed sheep which survived the initial exposure were eventually euthanized by the ranchers, since even the potential for exposure had rendered the sheep permanently unsalable for either meat or wool.

The incident, coinciding with the birth of the environmental movement and anti-Vietnam War protests, created an uproar in Utah and the international community. The incident also starkly underscored the inherent unpredictability of air-dispersal of chemical warfare agents, as well as the extreme lethality of next-generation persistent nerve agents at even extremely low concentrations.

[edit] U.S. General Accounting Office reportThe U.S. General Accounting Office issued a report on September 28, 1994, which stated that between 1940 and 1974, DOD and other national security agencies studied "hundreds, perhaps thousands" of weapons tests and experiments involving hazardous substances.


All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately

Mystery emergency triggers Dugway lockdown

An overnight lockdown at the sprawling, 801,000-acre Dugway Proving Ground was lifted early Thursday morning.

Officials at the remote Army installation, 90 miles southwest of Salt Lake City in Utah’s western desert, remained tight-lipped about why they ordered gates closed at 5:24 p.m. Wednesday. Up to 1,500 employees of Dugway reportedly were forced to stay the night.

Dugway would not detail reasons for the shutdown, but did stress that no damages or injuries were reported, and no threats received. The installation does house small amounts of chemical and biological warfare agents for defense testing purposes, and Dugway also is a prime Army base for testing of an array of conventional military weaponry and ammunition.

Asked specifically Thursday if a chemical or biological leak or spill may have prompted the lockdown, Dugway public affairs specialist Bonnie Robinson said she could neither confirm nor deny that scenario.

“I cannot talk about that,” she said, giving the same reply when asked if public safety was ever a concern. She said Dugway officials tentatively planned to either hold a news conference or release an updated statement early Thursday afternoon.

Chemical Scare Surrounds Lockdown of Dugway Army Facility in Utah

Chemical Scare Surrounds Lockdown of Dugway Army Facility in Utah
Thursday, 27 Jan 2011 12:08 PM


By Jim Meyers

The mysterious lockdown of the Army’s huge Dugway Proving Grounds in Utah has raised concerns about the possible disappearance of a dangerous chemical weapon. The lockdown began at 5:24 p.m. on Wednesday. Employees were not allowed to leave and had to spend the night in their offices or cars, and no one was allowed to enter the facility.

Officials at the remote location remained tight-lipped about why they ordered the gates closed, although Dugway Post commander Col. William King said the Army is working to “resolve a serious concern,” the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Spokeswoman Paula Thomas said the lockdown was part of “an ongoing security operation,” according to the Deseret News.

Someone at Dugway posted on Twitter on Wednesday night: “Still under a lockdown at Dugway for 6.5 hours and counting. Apparently a vial of VX nerve agent is missing.”

The message has since disappeared and no longer appears on Twitter.
Asked on Thursday whether a chemical or a biological leak or spill may have prompted the lockdown, Dugway public affairs specialist Bonnie Robinson said she could neither confirm nor deny that scenario, the Tribune reported.
“I cannot talk about that,” she said.

Dugway Proving Grounds is an 800,000-acre, Rhode Island-sized facility about 85 miles southwest of Salt Lake City. More than 2,000 people live on the site, which is used to test biological and chemical weapons. More than 1,200 were on the site when the lockdown began.

In March 1968, 6,249 sheep died in Skull Valley, an area about 30 miles from Dugway's testing sites. The sheep were found to have been poisoned by a chemical. The sickening of the sheep coincided with several open-air tests of the nerve agent VX at Dugway.

Utah base open after missing nerve agent vial located, officials say
By the CNN Wire Staff

(CNN) -- A Utah military facility that tests chemical and biological weapons was opened Thursday after a nearly 12-hour lockdown that officials said was prompted by a missing vial of "nerve agent."

"On January 26, during a routine inventory of sensitive material in the chemical laboratory, Dugway officials discovered a discrepancy between the records and the agent on hand," said a statement issued by the U.S. Army's Dugway Proving Ground. "As a precaution, the commander immediately locked down the installation and began efforts to identify the cause of the discrepancy."

The facility was put on lockdown about 7:25 p.m. ET on Wednesday, spokeswoman Paula Thomas said. Authorities said only that the move was "to resolve a serious concern within the Test Area."

The discrepancy was found to be less than a milliliter, or less than one-fourth of a teaspoon, of VX "nerve agent," the statement said.

A vial containing 1 ml was located about 3 a.m. Thursday (5 a.m. ET), the statement said. As of about 6:15 a.m., authorities said personnel had been allowed inside and would be allowed to go home shortly.

"All personnel are uninjured and safe," the facility said in a news release. "The public is safe as well."

VX is an amber-colored, odorless and tasteless oily liquid that does not evaporate easily unless temperatures are high, officials said. "It evaporates very slowly, almost like motor oil."

People can be exposed to the agent through skin contact -- the most toxic way -- or through eye contact or inhalation, the statement said. VX affects the body's ability to carry messages through the nerves.
