Management of radioactive waste from the mining and milling of ores: safety guide
International Atomic Energy Agency, Dec 16, 2002 - Technology & Engineering - 39 pages
Radioactive waste arises from all stages of mining and milling processes, and safety hazards to humans and the environment arise not only from its radioactivity but also from the presence of toxic chemicals and other materials in the waste. This guide provides recommendations and guidance on the safe management of radioactive waste resulting from these processes. It supersedes safety series 85 (1987, ISBN 9201235879).
