If I visit a uranium mine regularly, say to deliver equipment, will my health be affected?

Visiting the MineRadiation levels at the surface of the mine site could be higher than normal (higher than background levels) due to three sources: radon gas, ore dust brought up from the mine inadvertently and from the special waste rock pile. Special waste rock is rock with low concentrations of uranium considered too low to process. Under normal circumstances, none of these sources present a significant source of radiation, however, accumulated exposure over time and unexpected circumstances have the potential to increase the risk of health impacts for regular mine visitors.
