Dust caused by blasting, handling, processing or transporting soil and rock is an inevitable problem for all forms of mining. Not only is dust one of the most visible, invasive and potentially irritating impacts of mining operations, it has the potential to severely affect flora and fauna near the mine site and impact the health of mine workers and the community. As a result, dust control measures are fundamental to any mining operation.
The most effective and common method of dust suppression and dust control is through the application of water using either fixed or mobile sprinklers systems.
