Economy

Libby's economy has largely been supported by the use of natural resources, such as logging and mining. 17 miles (27 km) upstream from Libby is the site of the Libby Dam, one of the Columbia River Treaty Dams, finished in 1975..

Zonolite and asbestos

Vermiculite, an ore found in the area in 1881, had been mined in the area since 1919. In 1919, E.N. Alley bought the Rainy Creek claims and started the Zonolite Company. Zonolite is a branded trademark product made from vermiculite. W. R. Grace and Company bought the Zonolite mine in 1963. Prior to this logging was the leading source of employment in Libby. Nine years after the mine's closure, a newspaper reporter from Seattle published a series of articles documenting extensive deaths and illness from the asbestos contaminated vermiculite at Grace's former mine. Government investigators subsequently found that the samples had high levels of fibrous tremolite asbestos, which is known to have caused scores of asbestos related ailments among former Zonolite employees and their family members.More than 274 area deaths have allegedly been caused of asbestos-related diseases, and 17% of the residents who participated in the ATSDR screening study in Libby were found to have pleural abnormalities, which may be related to exposure to asbestos.

The EPA has been removing asbestos-contaminated soils and other materials in and near Libby since May 2000, and has spent $120 million in Superfund money on cleanup.

On June 11, 2008, the EPA and the Department of Health and Human Services launched an eight million dollar investigation into the effects of asbestos exposure on the people of Libby.

In 2008 a $60mn settlement was reached with an unspecified number of owners of homes and businesses throughout the United States who used insulation products made by Grace & Co. The attics were insulated with Zonolite, which contained vermiculite that was contaminated with asbestos.

Two documentary films, Libby, Montana, and Dust to Dust, and three books (An Air That Kills by Andrew Schneider and David McCumber, Libby, Montana: Asbestos and the Deadly Silence of an American Corporation by Andrea Peacock, and Fatal Deception by Michael Bowker) have been written regarding the Grace asbestos tragedy in Libby.

In February 2005 the Federal Government began a criminal conspiracy prosecution of Grace and of seven current and former Grace employees. The government alleges that Grace conspired to hide from employees and the town residents the asbestos dangers and that it knowingly released asbestos into the environment. On May 8, 2009, a jury of 12 Montanans found W.R. Grace & Co. and the accused employees not guilty on all counts, ending what was called the biggest environmental-crime prosecution in U.S. history.

On June 17, 2009 the EPA declared its first public health emergency. This emergency covers Libby and nearby Troy. It will provide an additional 130 million dollars in cleanup and medical assistance.
