Quarry rehabilitation: a case study

Two quarries abandoned around 15-23 years ago one revegetated, the other with natural regeneration were compared in order to assess benefits of artificial revegetation vs natural successional processes in the rehabilitation of abandoned limestone quarries. This approach was based on studies of

A procedure to evaluate environmental rehabilitation in

Nov 01, 2010 In order to mitigate such visual intrusion, it has been proposed that rehabilitation of limestone quarries should aim at “replicating” karst landforms, i.e. to mimic natural appearance by replacing straight lines and other engineered features by rock headwalls, buttresses and other karst landscape features (Gagen and Gunn, 1988, Gunn and Bailey, 1993) in areas of outstanding natural

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.

Dr Haller was given the mandate to begin rehabilitation in 1970.With the view that the limestone quarry had to be economically self-sustaining, two main projects were undertaken: 1. a forestry project with the long-term vision to re-create a diverse, ecologically as well as economically self-sustaining indigenous coastal forest ; and 2. an

Quarry rehabilitation : cliffs, landforms and ecology

Over the last fifteen years major progress has been made to provide acceptable rehabilitation of quarries in various countries. Many stone quarries are located in scenic areas of natural beauty and this necessitates the best possible rehabilitation. After the stone has been extracted efforts are made to simulate natural landforms to blend the quarry faces into the surrounding landscape. The

No Longer Just a Hole in the Ground The Adaptive Re-Use

A quarry is an area from which rocks such as marble, limestone, and granite are extracted for industrial use. Once depleted of their desired resources, quarries are frequently abandoned. The resulting gaping holes can fill with water and form dangerous quarry lakes while others are turned into unsightly landfills.
