This interesting reply just made me wonder if there were any quantities of U in those fiercely burning oil wells during the Iraq war, and how exposure to such smoke stands in comparison to whatever products of DU weapons.

It still is.

There is also a company that is "mining" coal combustion waste for uranium. It involves a situation where the coal that was burned has a higher than normal concentration of uranium.

The interesting post below reminded me about an old incident I've been told about with radiation alarms being set off by the smoke from a Danish coal fired power plant. The detector was placed at the Barsebäck NPP site in Sweden, apparently in the plume. Burning stuff that has been dug up from the ground seems like a nice way to spread uranium. Or did, before modern filter technology anyway.
