Reconnaissance for radioactive deposits was conducted in selected areas of eastern Alaska during Examination of copper, silver, and molybdenum occurrences and of a reported nickel prospect in the Slana-Nabesna and Chisana districts in the eastern Alaska Range revealed a maximum radioactivity of about percent equivalent uranium.

No appreciable radioactivity anomolies were indicated. Bygold was being mined near Windham Bay and near Sitka, in southeastern Alaska. The first major hard-rock gold mining began at the Alaska-Juneau, Perseverance, and Treadwell mines near present-day Juneau following the discovery of placer gold near tidewater in Alaska Bureau of Investigation.

DEC, in conjunction with the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services and other state, federal, and international agencies, has been testing Alaska seafood for any potential impacts resulting from the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan. Testing results have shown no detectable levels of Fukushima-related radionuclides.


Radiological Waste. Radiological materials and waste are strictly regulated at both the state and federal level: The United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is responsible for regulating radiological materials in the State of Alaska.

NRC regulates medical, industrial, and academic uses of nuclear materials through a combination of regulatory requirements, licensing, safety oversight. Found publications that matched ALL of theInvestigations for radioactive deposits in southeastern Alaska: U.S.

(The USGS says rare earth elements are often found alongside radioactive deposits of uranium and thorium.) The EPA claims that radioactive contamination is leaching into Kendrick Creek, a salmon-bearing stream running through the mine site, and adjacent Kendrick Bay, an.

Geologic map unit (, ) Mineral deposit model: Radioactive allanite in granitic rocks. Age of mineralization. Radioactive mineral deposits near Bokan Mountain, southeastern Alaska, were investigated for concentrations of columbium, rare-earth elements, and associated metals by the Bureau of Mines during portions of the summers of through Investigations initially focused on evaluation of.

No, there is no immediate or anticipated indication of harmful radiation reaching Alaska or its waters, therefore all seafood and other food items produced in Alaska are safe to consume.

Should radioactive material reach the U.S., the appropriate federal and local agencies will let people know about any contaminated sources of food.
