Description

"This report presents an assessment of doses to the public from radiological exposure pathways at Rum Jungle Lake Reserve, a popular recreation area near the township of Batchelor that lies on the footprint of the rehabilitated Rum Jungle Creek South uranium mine. This assessment has been made assuming access of the site during the dry season, both for short-term (picnics) and long-term (camping) visits. Doses received by the public during the wet season are likely to be lower, primarily due to suppression of radon exhalation from the ground surface and the lower wet season radon decay product concentration in the air"-- Executive summary.; Made available via the Publications (Legal Deposit) Act 2004 (NT).
