Samples of phosphate ores, products, by-products, effluents, and wastes were obtained and analyzed for their radioactivity content. Calculations were made to quantify the partitioning of the radionuclides in the processing steps from mining through the wet and thermal production techniques. Laboratory studies were made to establish the effectiveness of various treatments in controlling radioactivity in liquid effluents. Quantities of radioactivity entering the environment through various products, by-products, effluents, and wastes were estimated.
