The potential burden of radon-222 and its daughters in a mine atmosphere depends upon a number of parameters, one of which is the percentage of radon that may emanate. This laboratory study was undertaken to measure the emanation of radon from ore and rock samples selected from various mines and mining areas in the United States. Data derived from this study are used to evaluate the effects of various factors on radon emanation into mine openings.
