  • Evaluation of Fugitive Dust Emissions From Mining: Task 1

    INTRODUCTION This evaluation of fugitive dust air pollution from mining operations was undertaken to identify and compile currently available information on emission sour6es, regu- latory approaches, control techniques, and. research programs related to mining activities. An analysis of the assembled information will then be used as the basis for recommending near-term research and development

    The first step in the proposed fugitive dust study is to carry out a detailed evaluation of dust sources at the Red Dog Mine and Mill facility to assist in evaluation of the relative importance of the various dust sources and in the evaluation of any potential future dust control measures as may be proposed. This will be followed by an air

    The evaluation includes recent improvements to the Industrial Source Complex (ISC) model applicable to fugitive particulate emissions, and improvements to the emission factors used to estimate emissions from surface coal mine activities. The results show improved performance by the new model and emission factors relative to the original model and AP-42 emission factors. in

For these reasons, fugitive emissions are required to be assessed when facilities are seeking regulatory

  • CONTROL Of DUST EMISSION AND IMPACTS fROM SURfACE

    physical processes involved in most fugitive dust emissions (e.g. dust generated by a vehicle wheel rolling over an unpaved surface) has prevented the development of simple mathematical physical descriptions. An alternative approach has been based on a series of empirical measurements and parameterisation of dependence on causative factors. For example, the following empirical formula

  • Mine dust and you Fact sheets Ministry of Health

    The impact of dust from a nearby mine on local amenity depends on the distance from the mine site and climatic conditions such as wind. Concerns about amenity from mine site dust often relate to "visibility" of dust plumes and dust sources. Visible dust is usually due to short-term episodes of high emissions, such as from blasting.

  • Is Your Fugitive Dust Control Plan Effective Enough?

    Fugitive dust is typically the result from mining activities such as the physical movement of soil, vehicles traveling over unpaved surfaces, heavy equipment operation, blasting, and wind, which can erode mine tailings piles to create potentially contaminated fugitive dust. Equipment moving on unpaved roads or parched soil, and the storage and movement of aggregate piles also produce fugitive

  • Emissions of Fugitive Dust from Mine Dumps and Tailing

    Abstract. The article deals with the emission of fugitive dust from industrial sites with reference to a specific territory, the south-west of Sardinia (Sulcis-Iglesiente sub-region), where a contribution to the global particulate matter (PM) emission could be also associated to the abandoned mine dumps and tailing basins left behind by the former mining and mineral processing activities.

  • Benchmarking and management of fugitive dust

    Techniques have now been developed for the description of fugitive dust emissions associated with ultra-heavy mine haul trucks running on unpaved mine haul roads. Benchmarks are established as five degrees of 'dust defect' for trucks travelling at 40 km/h, and computer models are used to assess the likely dustiness of haul roads as a function of surface loading of fines, traffic types and
