Abstract
The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, has developed a data acquisition system to continously monitor radon, working level, absolute pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and air velocity. Data have been taken in intake and exhaust drifts, working stopes, and sealed-off areas of positive and negative ventilated uranium mines. Radon emanation rates, ranging from 1.7 - 12.2 x 10(-14) ci/cm2/sec were determined in four mines. The ratios of short duration, primary fan shutdown time to radon normalization time were 1 to 2 and 1 to 4, respectively, for negatively and positively ventilated mines. Blasting and slushing caused radon increases of 160 and 67 percent, respectively.
