RECLAMATION OF A LIMESTONE QUARRY TO A NATURAL PLANT ...

Reclamation of limestone quarries around the world is challenged by an extremely limiting environment, including steep slopes, scarce soil and high calcium carbonate substrattop es with low nutrients and water holding capacity. These issues were addressed at a limestone quarry in the Rocky Mountains of southern Alberta. Reintroduction of key components, such as vegetation and

the DoE "Restoration Blasting" and the DTLR "Reclamation of Limestone Quarries by Landform Simulation" research (DETR, 1997; DTLR, 2002) have reported on particular techniques. The substantial difficulties in forming stable and environmentally acceptable landform features by restoration blasting are well documented in this research. The findings also indicate areas requiring further research ...

The reclamation of the Irish Cove Quarry demonstrates how planned reclamation with community input can restore the land to a sustainable natural environment, free from safety hazards and long-term liabilities. This project also demonstrates land-use efficiency, wherein mining is part of a sequence of usage, preceded by hunting and traditional use, settlement, farming and forestry. Each ...

Spontaneous succession in limestone quarries as an ...

29/01/2010  The high conservation potential of limestone quarries is illustrated by a high proportion of red‐listed species (10%) and xeric specialists (14%) in our samples. We showed that this potential depends on the restoration method used. Although the quarried sites restored via technical reclamation and spontaneous succession did not differ in species richness in most of the studied taxa ...

This study investigated the effect of different limestone quarry reclamation treatment options on people’s perception of reclaimed limestone quarries. Ten different combinations of treatment methods and after-care for reclaiming quarries were simulated from which fifty still images were captured along a transect at five different distances from 50m to 6400m. The attractiveness and different ...

Limestones have been worked for many thousands of years — initially for building stone and agricultural lime and more recently for a wide range of construction and industrial uses. In most industrialized countries limestone quarries represent the most visually obvious and, in both process and landform terms, the most dramatic anthropogenic impact on karst terrain. However, quarrying has, to ...

Quarry rehabilitation: a case study

A reclamation project was conducted in a limestone quarry within the Serra da Arribida Natural Park (Portugal), one example of well-preserved Mediterranean vegetation in Europe. We compared the revegetation of 5 abandoned platforms sequentially revegetated over the last 15 years, at 3 year intervals. The successive revegetation of each platform resulted in distinct plant communities, differing ...

Natural recolonisation by volunteer species of chalk and limestone quarries has led to the development of attractive and species-rich communities in many parts of the United Kingdom. These communities have a basic similarity in floristic composition wherever they occur, but they also show a great deal of individual variation resulting from differences in the location, history and variability ...
