Three rock slope instability hazards have been investigated by means of rock kinematic stability analysis using the Rocscience software suite (Dips 5.0) planar sliding, wedge sliding and flexural toppling. Investigation of general failure mode was not part of this study, considering the overall strong character of the exploited limestones and dolomites as deduced from our field mapping.

Oct 11, 2019 Here are a few common health issues for miners and quarry workers. Dust exposure. During the extraction process, dust is almost impossible to avoid. The practice to reduce the number of airborne particles is by adding water to coal when it is mined or crushed. However, exposure to dust remains a common hazard for miners.
Hazard Identification and Risk Control Procedure Template.

Limestone deposits in the area have been mined since the late 1800s for a variety of uses including cement manufacture and metallurgical flux. Quarrying of limestone has been undertaken at Excelsior Quarry since 1980 and, the quarry has provided crushed and sized limestone for the Charbon Lime Works (also acquired by Graymont in 2019), since 2011.
Feb 15, 2021 The quality of crushed stone aggregates influences the durability and performance of pavement and concrete as they are the dominant component in the mix. Hence, the selection of a suitable quarry site with the quality source material is essential. Since the quarry site suitability assessment involves various factors, it is more economical to follow a stage-wise suitability
