Clark County WA team attends Erionite Workshop

On October 1, 2019 Marie Ogier and Alyssa Shiel attended a workshop in Bend, Oregon on Erionite and Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA). The workshop addressed the permitting of Eriniote and NOA as well as how it’s analyzed in a lab and how to manage the risks associated with them. Both reflected on how serious exposure can be – including the connection of Erionite to lung cancer and mesothelioma. Erionite and NOA can easily become re-mobilized and carried on the winds. The science for identifying these minerals is evolving.
