Join the AGS Community in Supporting Silicosis Prevention
To help prevent silicosis—a lung disease caused by breathing in tiny bits of silica—miners need proper masks and filters that can prevent the inhalation of silica dust.
Over time, silicosis results in irreversible damage to the lungs and often premature death. Tanzanite mining is prone to this disease because of the geology of the region and the largely underground, enclosed mining practices, which occur without sufficient ventilation.
Please help Gem Legacy provide these much-needed masks to miners. To do so, click the button below. Your donation is much appreciated!
