  • In recent, the placement of backfill in underground mines has emerged as a new paradigm in research as it not only improves safety but also allows disposal of byproducts including coal ash. In this regards, this paper addresses the backfilling challenges in limestone mine to prevent sinkhole and subsidence. Limestone mines, generally regarded as being safer than coal and metal mines, have been subject to unsupported mining methods. However, the increasing number of sinkholes worldwide has… CONTINUE READING
