Here i am showing the radiation reading i was getting of my Geiger Counter. This was in the Pegmatite showing of Saranac Mine. the radioactive zone is about 1-2 feet and you can see the rock looking rotten and darkened. Also the area is dug in indicating other rockhounds tried to get to the mineral samples but failed since radiation was so high. Its important to note that when the image was taken the level of radiation was still rising slowly.They currently are at 1.6 microsieverts an hour. Taken by M. Adamowicz.
