Mortality in Underground Miners in a Former Uranium

Methods: In a cohort of 35 204 former underground employees of Wismut AG, mortality was analyzed in comparison to the general male population of East Germany, and the pertaining standardized mortality ratios (SMRs) were calculated. Results: 18 510 persons in the study cohort died in the follow-up period 1960-2013. Mortality from lung cancer was 2.36 higher in the study cohort than in the general

Mortality in Underground Miners in a Former Uranium

2021-1-1  More than 400 000 persons worked in the uranium mine in Saxony and Thuringia between 1946 and 1990. As employees of the Soviet, later Soviet-German incorporated company (SAG/SDAG) Wismut, they mined more than 230 000 tons of uranium ore which was used to build Soviet nuclear weapons. The employees of Wismut were exposed to a variety of occupational risk factors, primarily the inhalation of radon and its progeny as well as silica dust (respirable crystalline silica), but also to uranium

Uranium Ore - Official IDT Mod Wiki

2021-5-20  Uranium ore is an ore that is found deep underground. It gives a slight glow, half of a redstone torch. The texture is a more green of einsteinium ore.. This ore requires an iron pick or higher to mine. When mined, it drops one uranium ore block which is then shoved into a furnace to be smelted into an uranium ingot.. Upon walking on the block, the ore will hurt the player.

Uranium mining – what method works best? - Nuclear ...

In a mill, uranium is extracted from the crushed and ground-up ore by leaching, in which either a strong acid or a strong alkaline solution is used to dissolve the uranium. The uranium is then removed from this solution and precipitated. After drying and usually heating it is packed in 200-litre drums as a concentrate.
