Review of the U.S. uranium mining industry has revealed a generally depressed industry situation. The 1982 U3O8 production from both open-pit and underground mines declined to 3,800 and 6,300 tons respectively with the underground portion representing 46% of total production. A field examination was conducted of 29 selected underground uranium mines that represent 84% of the 1982 underground production. Data was gathered regarding population, land ownership and private property valuation. Out to 2 km total population was 618 persons. An assessment was made of the current and future (222)Rn emission levels for a group of 27 uranium mines.
