Limestone—A Crucial and Versatile Industrial Mineral

Sedimentary limestone deposits can be extensive, covering hundreds . of square miles, and can be relatively uniform in thickness and quality. There-fore, limestone quarries can be large and long lived, mining limestone layers that can be hundreds of feet thick over areas of several square miles. Many quarries produce multiple products, and

This study examines stream loss in a small tributary of the Youghiogheny River known as Hoyes Run in Garrett County, Maryland. The stream bounds the pit of the Deep Creek limestone quarry, operated by Keystone Lime Company. During low flow, the stream abruptly terminates in a swallet, leaving approximately 100 m of dry streambed. In addition to geophysically investigating this swallet, our ...

Geotechnical Characterization of Jordanian Limestone

Full knowledge of the physical and mechanical behavior of limestone rocks is required for the safe design of structures. Little work has been done to characterize the physical and mechanical properties of Jordanian limestone especially under watery environment. Therefore, in this study the physical and mechanical properties of some Jordanian limestone were investigated.
