Application of the Folchi Method in the Limestone Quarry,
Abstract: The application of the FOLCHI method it is depicts in this paper to quantify the environmental impact of mining activities in a limestone quarry. The affected environment surrounding the pit was broken down into the eleven components such as Human health and immunity, Surface water, Air quality, Noise, Landscape etc. The effect of ten impacting factors, both directly and indirectly, fromFrom the Magazine: A quarry story – Talisman,Within a few decades, places like downtown Bowling Green and WKU would be unrecognizable — transformed by the impact of local limestone quarries. From the 1830s to the 1930s, limestone from Bowling Green dominated Warren County construction. Bowling Green stands on a 50-mile bed of oolitic limestone, but, in the early 19th century, the city was unaware of the stone’s quality, worth and utility.Evaluating the impact of a limestone quarry on suspended,,01/03/2011· The Kefar Gil’adi quarry is located in the northwest Hula valley (), on the eastern slopes of the Upper Galilee area (Israel).The quarry’s main interest is the 200-m thick layer of Middle Eocene “Bar Kokhba” Formation limestone rock, underlying the “Kefar Gil’adi” Formation, a 400-m thick sequence of Neogene conglomerates, limestone, and clays (Sneh and Weinberger, 2003).
