Ecological Restoration of a Mediterranean Limestone Quarry

Efforts to revegetate this limestone quarry were initiated by Secil (cement company) in 1983. Until 2008, the top-to-bottom excavation of the hill face produced a stair-like sequence of terraces. On each terrace, substrate (marl spoils) was laid, and woody species planted (mostly from the local flora) soon after excavation stopped.

Limestone quarrying and quarry reclamation in Britain

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

Plant species patterns and restoration Quarry Life Award

Quarrying is a form of mining distinguished by the fact that the product is for building or architectural purposes, rather than being destined for further processing (Lahiri-Dutt, 2004). Limestone is part of the rocks the more extracted, as this rock is also used as a source of aggregates and in the manufacturing of lime, whose global output in 2008 reached 290 million tonnes (USGS, 2009).
