Title An evaluation of radiation and dust hazards at a mineral sand processing plant
Bibliographic information June 1991, Vol.60, No.6, p.781-787. Illus. 18 ref.
Abstract This 3-part article discusses the results of a 2-year study on radiation and dust hazards in a mineral sand processing plant involving: (1) evaluation of external γ radiation levels and determination of isotopic composition of the different sand products; (2) evaluation of radiation carried in long-lived radioactive dust (LLRD) particles; (3) evaluation of Rn gas concentrations within the working environment of the plant.
