      Naturally Occurring Asbestos NOA occurs in rocks and soil as a result of natural geological processes. Natural weathering or human activities may disturb NOA-bearing rock or soil and release mineral fibers into the air, which pose a greater potential for human exposure by inhalation. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has an ongoing project to.   Potential asbestos-bearing rocks account for about % of the land area of eastern Australia. The main mode of occurrence is as narrow cross fibre and slip fibre veins of chrysotile asbestos in serpentinised ophiolite complexes along the boundaries of major tectonic domains. Smaller deposits of chrysotile and amphibole asbestos occur in metamorphosed mafic and ultramafic rocks associated Cited by:

      Asbestos is a commercial and industrial name given to the fibrous variety of several naturally occurring minerals, the most common of which have been mined and used in commercial products. Asbestos is made up of fiber bundles. These bundles, in turn, are composed of long and thin fibers that can be easily separated from one another. Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA) — asbestos as it is naturally found in various minerals, such as chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, actinolite, and serpentinite. Undisturbed, these minerals may have little to no impact on the environment and human health.

      Three of the six naturally occurring asbestos minerals, chrysotile, amosite, and crocidolite, have been most commonly used in building products. Asbestos became a popular commercial prod- uct because of its strength, heat resistance, corrosion resistance, and thermal insulation properties. Asbestos or amiante (from Greek Asbestos (inextinguishable) and amiantos lithos (unstained stone), respectively) is a commercial ancient name for fibrous, naturally occurring inorganic materials that are valued in the industry for their resistance to heat and high tensile strength (Michaels and Chissick , Hodgson , Habashi , Virta.

The term “naturally occurring asbestos” refers to the mineral as a natural component of soils or rocks as opposed to asbestos in commercial products, mining or processing operations. Naturally occurring asbestos can be released from rocks or soils by routine human activities, such as construction, or natural weathering processes.

Asbestos fibers in rock can become airborne, and therefore a potential health risk, when disturbed. Scientists are still studying how much asbestos in rock or soil becomes airborne when disturbed. In El Dorado Hills, California, U.S.

EPA is paving dirt roads and covering bare soil at Oak Ridge High School to prevent naturally occurring asbestos. The EPA Region 9 office is working in areas of California to address concerns about potential effects of naturally occurring asbestos.

Asbestiform minerals occur naturally in rock and soil as the result of natural geologic processes, often in veins near earthquake faults in the coastal ranges and the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Most of us, when we think of asbestos, think of the insulation in old buildings up for demolition. But asbestos fibers are naturally occurring minerals, and their natural habitats are deposits. Naturally occurring asbestos is only a health problem if it is disturbed.

Asbestos is made up of fibers that are so small you cannot see them. If asbestos fibers are in the air you breathe, you might get asbestos fibers in your lungs. Breathing in the fibers is the primary way that people are exposed to asbestos. Naturally occurring asbestos - A recurring public policy challenge (commonly referred to as naturally occurring asbestos, NOA) have gained the regulatory and media spotlight in many areas.

Asbestos refers to a specific group of six naturally occurring minerals, which are made up of fine fibrous crystals sharing common attributes (asbestiform habit). Asbestos fibers are long, thin, strong and flexible, making them a desirable ingredient in a wide range of compounds with many applications.
