Sure they can.  In theory, they could gather it up and process the
essentially low yield ore to remove enough radioactives that the rest is at
background radiation levels.

Perhaps they won't (because they think they can skate by without this
expense), but they could.  "Won't" is a different sort of problem, though.

And what info they will be a told probably won't be 100% accurate.
