Abstract: This report describes the laboratory and the field work connected with the study of the fate of radionuclides already buried at the burial ground of the AAEC Research Establishment at the Lucas Heights. The study complements and expands investigations made before the burial ground was established. The very slow movement of radioactivity from the buried waste is confirmed by environmental monitoring. The ion exchange capacity of the soil and the minimal ground water velocity both contribute to the retention of radioactivity in the area. A simple model is developed to demonstrate the capacity of the burial area for radioactive waste
