Bantycock Quarry About Us British Gypusm

We currently extract over 400,000 tonnes of gypsum here every year. We continually restore the site as work progresses. During 2017, we restored 25 acres of land and planted 29,500 native trees. In 2020, 20 acres of formerly quarried land will be restored to wildflower meadows, agriculture and land. We will also plant 5,000 native trees.

Gypsum Quarry Restoration at Ramon Crater EPOD a

May 05, 2013The photo at top shows a partially restored gypsum quarry found on the north side of Ramon Crater, located near the center of the Negev Desert of Israel. The distance from the top of the quarry to the water line is about 50 ft (15 m). Ramon crater is a geological, erosion cirque that formed over a period of approximately 200 million years.

Cyanobacteria were well represented in all the cores (restored and non‐restored). Mosses were promoted the most by hydroseeding. Lichen cover was remarkably higher in undisturbed samples, very low in the quarry abandoned in 1992, and 0 in the rest. Complete spontaneous recovery of biocrusts was inefficient in the 25‐year period examined.

Gypsum Wikipedia

Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula CaSO 4 2H 2 O. It is widely mined and is used as a fertilizer and as the main constituent in many forms of plaster, blackboard/sidewalk chalk, and drywall.A massive fine-grained white or lightly tinted variety of gypsum, called alabaster, has been used for sculpture by many
