9/1/2011 - Brochures/flyers/pamphletsThe effect rocks and minerals have on our daily lives is not always obvious, but this book will help explain how essential they really are.
Evaluation of Sequential Extraction Procedures for Soluble and Insoluble Hexavalent Chromium Compounds in Workplace Air Samples2/1/2009 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThe results of this study by NIOSH have served to provide performance data in support of the procedures described in the international standard methods, for which such results were previously unavailable in the peer-reviewed literature.
11/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis paper describes a study in which a field colorimetric method for extracting and measuring manganese in welding fume was developed.
7/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNIOSH's Pittsburgh Research Laboratory conducted a study of the explosibility of various metals and elemental dusts, focusing on explosion temperatures. The data will aid in evaluating explosion hazards in the minerals/metals processing industries.
The Fate of Metal (Fe) During Diesel Combustion: Morphology, Chemistry, and Formation Pathways of Nanoparticles4/1/2007 - Peer reviewed journal articlesThis report describes an investigation in which NIOSH used iron-doped diesel fuel to generate metal-bearing diesel particles and a subsequent analysis of the particles using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS).
9/1/2004 - Peer reviewed journal articlesNational Institute for Occupational Safety and Health method 7703 is a portable field procedure for the analysis of workplace air filter samples for hexavalent chromium (CrVI) content immediately after the samples are collected. The field method prescri...
2/1/1999 - Conference papersThe NIOSH Pittsburgh Research Laboratory conducted research to determine the safe operating conditions for using recycled (used) lubricating oil from mining equipment as a partial replacement for diesel fuel to make ANFO-type blasting agents.
7/1/1997 - Technology NewsThe approach taken in this research project was to mine only the ore-bearing portion of the deposit using a high-pressure water jet to thaw the gravels and a downhole hydraulic-lift-type pump to bring the ore to he surface as slurry.
1/1/1992 - Information CircularsA U.S. Bureau of Mines study on the potential availability of copper from 204 mines and deposits in market economy countries.
