EPA Superfund Program: COALINGA ASBESTOS MINE, COALINGA, CA

Superfund Site Profile

The Coalinga Asbestos Mine site covers 120 acres near Coalinga, California. The site consists of partially demolished mill buildings and a process waste mine tailings pile that occupies about 20 acres. Two large open-pit mines are located above the mill site and were used as the sources of ore for Coalinga Asbestos Company milling operations. Facility operations contaminated air, soils, sediments and surface water with asbestos. After cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in 1998.
