Abstract: Radon activity in slate mines in the aravali range in Haryana was measured to protect the occupational workers and general public from radiation. The alpha sensitive LR-115 type II plastic track detectors (solid state nuclear track detectors) were used for the measurements. Results of various measurements of the radon activity and inhalation dose received by the workers have been reported. The radon activity and the annual inhalation dose in the environment of various slate stone mines in Haryana varied from 21 to 113 Bq m-3 with an average of 38.5 ± 5.8 Bq m-3 and 0.37 to 1.94 mSv with an average of 0.66 ± 0.10 mSv, respectively. Seasonal variation of radon activity has also been studied and reported.
