Abstract
The Bureau of Mines has made a study of the magnitude of the variations of radon daughter mixtures, with the objective of determining whether these variations reflect the existing physical conditions in uranium mine atmospheres or if they are merely random or systematic errors. To accomplish this, many data have been plotted using a triangular graphing technique which shows that plateout affects raa more than rab or rac, and that it is impossible to find simple correlations between working level ratios, radon daughter mixtures, and age.
