Investigation of fugitive dust emissions from Nepheline Syenite mine tailings near Nephton Ontario

UNIMIN extracts and produces feldspar at two adjacent sites located north of Havelock, Ontario. In recent years, there have been occasional complaints from nearby residents concerning high levels of dust deposition on their properties. The residents believe that the dust originates from the mine site. In response, UNIMIN has invested heavily in several dust control strategies. However, the relative efficacy of these strategies has not been quantified for the given site conditions.
