Uranium Exploration Methods Using Radon, 1968
Radon tests in surface waters and in soils were carried out in three different geological environments to determine the applicability of the radon method for detailed prospecting for uranium. Radon measurements were made during the 1968 field season in the Gatineau Hills area in Quebec, and the Sudbury and Elliot Lake areas in Ontario. In general, the investigations showed that depending on the medium and sampling density used, the radon method can outline radioactive sources on both reconnaissance and more detailed scales.
