This evaluation of fugitive dust air pollution from mining operations was undertaken to identify and compile currently available information on emission sources, regulatory 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 programs which might be implemented by IERL-Cincinnati to fill gaps in the data base and further document effective control techniques for fugitive dust from mining operations. For the more promising recommended R and D efforts, proposed technical approaches will also be developed. This project is composed of three tasks: Task (1) Identification of fugitive dust sources associated with mining activities; Task (2) Assessment of current status of the environmental aspects of fugitive dust; Task (3) Recommendation of promising research areas. Tasks 1 and 2 are presented in this report.
