Caption: Asbestos mine in Aminandos, Cyprus. Asbestos is a fibrous mineral, which is used in industry as a fireproofing & insulating material. Major deposits of asbestos are found in Quebec (Canada), New York (USA) & the Urals (Soviet Union). Smaller deposits are found in Cyprus, Zimbabwe & Italy. Continued exposure to asbestos dust over long periods, as in mining & manufacturing, may lead to a respiratory disease known as asbestosis.
