View,Roof Stability Issues in Underground Limestone Mines in,,Pittsburgh, PA, USA . ABSTRACT . The room-and-pillar mining method is used extensively in underground limestone mines in the Eastern and Midwestern U.S. The rock mass is typically a near-horizontal, bedded deposit at relatively shallow depth. A survey of 34 mines was conducted in which data on roof spans, rock mass properties and supportLimestone—A Crucial and Versatile Industrial Mineral Commodity,Although limestone is common in many parts of the United States, it is critically absent from some. Limestone is used to produce Portland cement, as aggregate in concrete and asphalt, and in an enormous array of other products, making it a truly versa- tile commodity.
