The National Asbestos Exposure Review is the name of an Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry project to evaluate sites that received and processed vermiculite mined in Libby, Montana from the 1920's through 1990. This site provides a public interface for the project and presents information including a description of project objectives, an interactive list of project sites, fact sheets and information about vermiculite and asbestos, and links to other asbestos-related resources and further information about the conditions at Libby, Montana.

This description of a site outside SERC has not been vetted by SERC staff and may be incomplete or incorrect. If you have information we can use to flesh out or correct this record let us know.
