Based on the data used in th e study releases to the air of respirable crystalline silica specifically quartz dust via wind erosion sandhandling and extraction at quarries accounts for less than 1 percent of the total of quartz emissions as fine particulate matter PM in CanadaMore Detail +
Breathing sharp freshlycut sand dust such as silica at sand mining and processing sites carries a greater risk of pulmonary disease than breathing older smoother particles weathered by heat wind and moisture – such as silica dust blown from cropland There is no federal standard for ambient air exposure to silica outside the workplaceMore Detail +
