Asbestos Exposure Montana

Asbestos Exposure in Montana

Nearly half the population of Libby, Montana has been diagnosed with asbestos disease, and another 200 have died as a result of exposure to asbestos-tainted vermiculite. Vermiculite, by itself, is a relatively innocuous form of clay. When it’s heated, it expands 8 – 30 times its size, making it a lightweight, fire-resistant form of insulation. It was marketed as Zonolite® and shipped all over the nation.

The Libby Mine and Karst Mine were the two biggest contributors to asbestos-related materials being released into the air. Tons of vermiculate that originated here was contaminated by asbestos in the mines and was shipped throughout the country. There are an estimated 35 million homes that contain insulation of this type.
