Uranium Mining and Milling Wastes: An Introduction

2016-2-22  Former uranium mine and mill sites often have very poor properties for the isolation of contaminants. Detailed investigations have to be performed at such sites by independent experts, before such disposal can be considered. > See also: Environmental impacts of uranium mining and milling - Slide Talk

Occupational exposure: Uranium mining and milling

What do I need to know? Exposure to ionising radiation in the mining and milling of uranium ores can come externally from gamma radiation emitted from ore and process materials or internally from the inhalation of radon decay products, uranium ore or uranium product dust. Internal exposure is also possible through the ingestion of materials.
