Asbestos Mines Vermiculite Mining & Asbestos Exposure

2021-10-20  Exposure was highest before asbestos regulations were implemented in the 1970s, but active vermiculite, talc and taconite mines in the U.S. remain contaminated with asbestos and pose an exposure threat to current miners. Coal miners have also developed asbestos-related diseases, and this is likely caused by asbestos products used in coal mining.

Common Types of Mining Equipment Used in the Mining

2021-3-25  Mining is one of the most vital components of modern society due to the use of mined minerals in almost every consumer product. Additionally, 50% of the nation’s energy comes from coal or nuclear power that uses uranium. To support this need for modern equipment, mines are found in all 50 states, including our home state of Nevada.
