The Bureau of Mines concern over radiation health hazards in uranium mines is inherent in its responsibility to promote safe health environments in the mining industry. The two volumes of this publication were prepared to make available information that could aid in minimizing radiation exposure of underground uranium miners. This second volume discusses in detail specialized features of the radon-daughter control problem such as mine ventilation, instrumentation and calibration, sampling patterns, and record keeping. Volume 2 will be of interest as a reference guide for ventilation engineers and radon-daughter control specialists.
