Mining is the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, usually from an orebody, lode, vein, seam, reef or placer deposit.These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay.
Total underground mining for industrial minerals amounted to 138 Mt, nearly all of which was crude ore. Underground mining for metal ores amounted to only 20 Mt, of which 95% was crude ore. Company name, as listed in table 1, represents the mine owner.
Limestone mining can affect ground water conditions. Limestone deposits often occur in association with karst, a topography where limestone slowly dissolves away underground. The deposits result in sinkholes, caves and areas of rock fractures that form underground drainage areas.
The Lexington Limestone, 180 to 320 feet thick, contains a variety of carbonate lithologies, but is mainly fine to coarse grained, partly shaly, fossiliferous limestone.

Some Issues in Limestone Mining. Limestone is most often mined from a quarry. However, underground limestone mines are found at places in the central and eastern United States, especially in and near cities. Underground mining of limestone has some advantages over surface quarrying and will probably increase in the future.
