In July, 1980, the Montana Department of Health and Environmental Sciences (DHES) contracted with the EPA to further investigate the potential sources of radon in Butte. Under the agreement with EPA, surface geological constitutes, air, water and natural gas supplies, and building materials were investigated as potential radon sources. Following the investigation of potential radon sources in Butte, it was concluded that ambient air, soils and surface geology all contribute to Butte's radon problem. It is believed that homes constructed over major factures or mineralized veins are the most severely impacted. Aplite and quartz monzonite also contribute to the problem, but to a lesser extent. Ambient air is probably a major source of indoor radon in structures having low concentrations.
