Phosphate deposits throughout the world contain uranium and thorium as a natural constituent of the ore. Mining and processing of these ores redistributes much of this radioactive material among the various products, by-products, and wastes. To determine the radiological impact of the phosphate industry, the EPA Office of Radiation Programs has been conducting an extensive study of the redistribution of this radioactivity. One task of this overall study was to evaluate the radiation exposure to phosphate industry workers. This report describes the efforts undertaken to measure the personnel exposures, describes the exposures encountered, and relates these findings to existing federal guides regarding personnel exposures.
