Abstract
Six underground tests were conducted to evaluate the performance and determine the reliability of three different types of personal radon daughter dosimeter systems in active uranium mine usage. Mean-time- between-failures estimates from 194.4 to 276.2 Hours were obtained, and advantages and disadvantages of each system are identified. Test results suggest one system is marginally acceptable for large- scale uranium mining usage. Recommendations are presented for improving the existing systems and for developing new and more satisfactory versions.
