Environmental Hazards of Limestone Mining Sciencing

Sep 26, 2017 In humid climates, limestone dissolves quickly and is carried away by water. This creates caves which can become weak and collapse. Underground mining of limestone can cause a cascading environmental impact. Mining in the karst can lower the water table, which removes the support of rock that overlies water-filled caverns, which can create

Environmental Hazards of Limestone Mining Education

Limestone mines use two types of blasting. Small explosive charges set along drilled lines free blocks of stone to be removed for construction. Large charges reduce whole areas of limestone to rubble, which is removed for use as crushed stone. The noise, dust, and impact from explosions can result in noise pollution and dust.
