Silicosis in mining and quarrying in South Australia

The minerals extracted from mines and quarries vary greatly from site to site regarding the amount of silica materials present in the rock. The higher the proportion of silica in the rock, the higher the proportion of fine crystalline silica that can be expected in the total airborne particles.

Dust Including Silica Dust

Dust is produced in the quarrying process while it is being blasted, crushed, screened, transported and stored. There are three ways that you can manage dust: 1. Contain it, 2. collect it, or. 3. suppress it. The Pareto principle (or 80-20 rule) applies to quarry dust generation. "Eighty percent of the dust in a given quarry is generated by 20% ...
