Impact of silica mining on environment

mining. sand falls by gravity to the bottom. After washing, the sand is then sent to a surge pile where water adhering to the sand particles infiltrates back into the ground. From the surge pile the sand is sent to the dryer and screening operation where the sand is dried in a drum with hot air blasted into it.

TECHNICAL SUPPORT DOCUMENT

The primary source of PM10 is from the mining process prior to the slurry operations. The source is not a categorical source and for the purpose of PSD area applicability, the source is below the 250 tons per year thresholds for all pollutants. PM10 emissions are created during the mining operations and handling of sand after the dryer.
