  • Hydrochemical Impacts of Limestone Rock Mining

    drainage originating from the coal and ore mining processes in general and open-pit mining in particular are well documented in the literature (Cherry et al. 2001; Skousen et al. 2002). Even though the environmental impacts of ore and coal mining have been adequately investigated, the impact of limestone rock mining has not been well studied.
