  • Forte Energy employs the Pylon AB-5R for cost effective Radon detection

    Forte Energy (Perth) is exploring for uranium in the Sahara Desert of Mauritania with the aid of the Pylon AB-5R. It takes two days of travelling to get to the isolated project area. The principle techniques are airborne and ground gamma radiometric surveys, with trenching and drilling of suitable anomalies. In some places a thin sand cover is present along the trend of a mineralised zone ...

  • Radon Gas Exposure – the Second Leading Cause of Lung Cancer

    We are all exposed to radiation from natural and man-made sources. Radon is a colourless, odourless radioactive gas formed by the radioactive decay of the small amounts of uranium that occur naturally in all rocks and soils. Radon in soil is the biggest source of Radon in indoor air and presents a greater risk than Radon in drinking water. Properties built in certain areas around ...
