Frac Sand Health and Environmental Impacts - Earthworks

Frac sand mining creates significant air pollution from the handling, mining, and processing of the sand. The important sources of air emissions come from the tiny dust particles – known as particulate matter – scattered during mining and processing. These tiny dust particles, usually only a few microns in diameter, when inhaled in the lungs can lead to Silicosis – cancer of the lungs ...

LaSalle County Mining - Air quality

17/10/2014  Sand-sized crystalline silica is not a health concern because the particles are too big to enter your lungs. The crystalline silica of interest for health is when it is present in dust. Dust can become airborne in this county by disturbing the soil, such as farmers tilling the soil, harvesting, and mining. Air permits have conditions to reduce the potential for dust to become airborne at mines.
