This report, Part 2, deals specifically with twelve tasks associated with the Uranium Mill Tailings Radiation Control Act. They are: (1) Physical and chemical characterization of resuspended materials from ore, subore, and overburden material; (2) Radon and other constituents in mine water and exhaust vents; (3) Thorium content of overburden, subore, and ore; (4) Analysis of pollutants in aqueous effluents and wastes; (5) Trace elements and radionuclides in surface run-off from ore, subore, and overburden piles; (6) Radon emission from inactive underground uranium mines; (7) Radon exhalation from ore, subore, and overburden from an inactive uranium mine; (8) Site mapping; (9) Gamma mapping; (10) Soil sampling; (11) Chemical constituents of mill tailings leachates; (12) Chemical and radiochemical composition of airborne particulates downwind from a uranium tailings pile.
