be exposed to the radiation from the activation products in the reactor vessel. The thermal, epithermal and fast neutron fluxes in the reactor vessel of the SMART reactor were calculated using the GEOSHIELD code1). The radioactivity due to activation products in the structural material of …

How can UNSCEAR mention hazards of mining rare earth elements without mentioning the known hazards of uranium mining? Agenda based science?
