GA Technologies of La Jolla has signed an agreement in principle to buy an Oklahoma uranium-processing operation from Kerr-McGee, a major Oklahoma-based energy company. The price was not disclosed. The plant, Sequoyah Fuels Corp., in Gore, Okla., was the site of an accident in January, 1986, involving a burst cylinder of uranium hexafluoride that sent a cloud of toxic gas into the atmosphere. One employee was killed, and 30 were hospitalized.
