Uranium mine ventilation costs.
Spokane, WA: U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Mines, IC 8855, 1981 Jan; :1-18
This Bureau of Mines report converts published data on the cost of ventilating uranium mines to a common price base and analyzes these data to determine the cost per ton of uranium ore at various levels of radiation exposure control. There appears to be an exponential increase of cost as the radiation level is lowered. The 1967 base costs are extrapolated to present dollars, and some cost comparisons are given for other radiation control measures.
