Earlier work-related lung and nasal cancer studies included estimates of exposures to different nickel species in the refinery. Based on the metallurgy, only insoluble nickel was believed to be present around the roasters but mixed exposure was assumed in most areas, including the tankhouse. Occasional leaching tests of samples from the roaster area have indicated the presence of soluble nickel. This study reports on five parallel sets of dust samples collected from different floors with… CONTINUE READING
