A fugitive dust sampling program was conducted at Anvil Points, Colorado, site of the Paraho mining and oil shale retorting operations. High-volume samplers were used extensively for fugitive dust collection, and 175 total suspended particulate calculations are reported for measurements made at the mine adits, the haul road, raw shale crushing area, and the spent shale transfer area. Supporting meteorological data is also given as well as background dust measurements. Particulate size distribution calculations were derived from 36 cascade impactor samples at the above locations. Elemental chemical analysis results are reported for eighteen elements from each of twenty selected high-volume sampler collections. In addition, twenty-six samples were extracted for organic content. The extractions were then fractionated by the EPA/IERL Level 1 method, and eight organic classification fractions are quantitatively given. The significance of these findings is summarized, and recommendations for work are stated.
