Fugitive dust constitutes one of the most severe environmental problems in quarries because it escapes capture. This review aims to provide overview of dust concentration caused by quarrying by synthesising the current knowledge. The 25 studies explored here were conducted in open-pit quarries or mines. Three main dust sources surfaced from the studies: drilling, crushing and hauling. Analysis revealed a range of dust concentrations caused by different quarrying operations. Crushing was the most significant dust source, while drilling caused the highest variation. Dust concentration decrease was observed with increasing distance, but the retention was incoherent due to local dust sources.
