You know, I thought the same thing! I used to work as an industrial radiographer and our company tossed out a couple of old radiation survey meters. They weighed a couple of pounds with batteries, but in retrospect I guess I could have grabbed one anyway. I'm not sure how effective they would have been, but they did measure radiation in MR (milli-roengtens).PageRob wrote:Looks like I'll have to take my pocket geiger down to Horseshoe Mesa now...
:roll: There's already enough radioactive stuff actually in the canyon (not on the plateaus surrounding the rim) to keep you from getting a good night's sleep if you think too hard about it.Canyonram wrote:Be there or be prepared to glow in the dark after your Canyon hike.
I really doubt it. He merely pointed out that one particular objection is not a very strong argument. I think don't think the mine itself will have any real impact on groundwater, but I worry much more about the tailings.Canyonram wrote: Here, you appear as an apologist for the uranimium mining indusrty to proceed with plans to operate uranium mines near the Grand Canyon that could have long-term health effects????
