Abstract
The Bureau of Mines presents a general discussion of the radon- daughter hazard associated with underground uranium mining and the control measures which are effective in eliminating this danger. The problem of employee exposure to radiation in underground uranium mines is reviewed, methods of determining atmospheric alpha radiation levels are discussed, and practical methods of reducing radon and radon-daughter influx into active mine openings are presented. Other pertinent subjects in radiation control are discussed, such as mine ventilation, mine planning, miner education, and individual exposure protection.
