Jun 4, 2010 Abstract. Years of unregulated mining activity have left hundreds of abandoned quarries across Lebanon. Satellite images show that the number of quarries and areas they cover increased, from 784 quarries covering 2897 ha in 1989, to 1278 quarries covering 5267 ha in 2005. This paper presents a

The aim of the current research is to identify a vibration level that will not cause damage to the oil pipelines of SUMED Company close to the limestone quarry of To evaluate the environmental impact of the quarry blasts at NCC, the ground vibrations (PPV and air blast) are monitored for two months at various distances as
Limestone deposits exist throughout the world. These alkaline, sedimentary rocks were laid down mostly as deposits on the beds of ancient seas. A valuable natural resource, limestone has many uses in construction, agriculture and industry. Limestone quarries can be above ground or underground, and can cover large
Quarrying limestone is big business but the need for limestone has to be balanced against the economic, environmental and social effects. Some factors that have to be considered include: effect on employment – increased job opportunities pollution – noise, sound and air traffic levels visual effects of having a quarry.

Introduction This Background Information Document (BID) provides information to assist stakeholders to participate in the Environment and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and environmental authorisation process for Southport Cement's proposed limestone quarry and cement plant project in Ogun State, Nigeria.
The study was carried out to assess the environmental impact of quarry activities in. ObaIle, Ondo flooring, such as granite, limestone, marble, sandstone, slate and even just clay to make ceramic tiles. However, like mines and quarries have been a source of negative environmental effects which have led to erosion
While a bag of stones or gravel may look fairly benign, the process of getting it to us is anything but benign. Aggregate is mined from the earth, either dug out of pits or blasted out of quarries. This process has many significant environmental impacts.. Creating the pits or quarries requires the removal of virtually all natural
Table 1. Summary table of sites and impacts studied. Limestone Quarries. Limestone quarries are found in southeastern Minnesota from the Twin Cities south to Iowa and west to Mankato. Some of potential environmental impacts of mining proposals, and rarely do they have budgetary resources to hire consultants of
We have carried out an assessment on the environmental effects of limestone quarrying on some com munities in the Lower Manya Krobo District in the Eastern region of Ghana. Dust emission is one of the major effects of the practice of limestone extraction and as such, dust (PM10) sampling was conducted at the affected
The main environmental impacts of hard rock aggregates extraction and transportation on the historic villages and cultural Noise generated at open sites such as crushed rock aggregate quarries can, depending on distance (e.g. from limestone and sandstone) are likely to be alkaline in nature and possibly chemically
