It is a compilation of detailed information on uranium mining and processing stages and techniques, general radiation protection considerations in the relevant industry, general methodology applicable for control, monitoring and dose assessment, exposure pathways, and radiation protection programs for the range of commonly used mining and processing techniques. Radiation protection in uranium and other mines: a report of Committee 4 of the International Commission on Radiological Protection.. [International Commission on Radiological Protection. radiation protection, types of radiation and their interactions with matter and with living cells, sources of radiation hazards in mines and mills and associated radiological protection standards, radiation protection in the nuclear mining industry, optimization of radiation protection in the mining and milling of uranium. between uranium mining and other mines is the need for radiation protection • Generally conventional hazards (physical and chemical) are far more significant in terms of real risk than any radiological risks • However, radiation risk is of significant concern to the majority of stakeholders (both internal and external) and a strong emphasis.
Enhancing radiation protection of workers on an industry wide and global basis supports the implementation of internationally consistent standards and approaches with regard to the protection of workers. In , the IAEA initiated the Information System on Uranium Mining. Exposure (UMEX) to enhance radiation protection of workers in uranium. This training packages includes information on uranium mining and processing stages and techniques, general radiation protection considerations in the relevant industry, general methodology applicable for control, monitoring and dose assessment, exposure pathways, and radiation protection programs for the range of commonly used mining and processing techniques and includes eleven case studies for different mining .

The Uranium Mines and Mills Location Database is designed for use with geographic information system (GIS) software. A geographic projection of the uranium locations found in the database may be generated with GIS software, using the files available in the ZIP file below.
diverse fields, such as mining law, environmental law, toxic and / or radioactive waste regulations, radiation protection at the work place, etc. Risk analysis and management The remediation of uranium mining and milling facilities is an activity that calls for the application of proper risk analysis and management at all stages of the process. The uranium mining industry studied is located in Saelices el Chico in the western province of Salamanca and was the only uranium mine in Spain that was in production until Integrated Rn measurements were made in all cases by using nuclear-etched-track detectors (Landauer Inc., Glenwood, IL). The following material is taken verbatim from a World Nuclear Association (WNA) policy document “Sustaining Global Best Practices in Uranium Mining and Processing—Principles for Managing Radiation, Health and Safety, Waste and the Environment.” 1 The WNA is an international organization with the goal of promoting nuclear energy and a mission to seek to foster interaction among top. Guidance for other mining commodities As well as reports concentrating on uranium mining and milling, the Agency also publishes high-level standards for radiation protection in all industries, and specific guides for other mining in the Safety Reports Series (SRS): • Radiation Protection and NORM Residue Management in the.
