Abstract:The aim of the project was to explain and compare the current state, legislation and practices concerning naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) -related mining in the Nordic countries. The focus was on the mines that are aiming at off-taking of uranium as a co-product or a by-product, or are processing ores, which contain high levels of NORMs. The project concentrated on investigating how the environmental factors and different origins of radionuclides affected their activity concentrations and transfer factors in ore, soil, water and vegetation.
