The Major mining operations in limestone located in Ogun State and many other mining operations in the country lacks adequately trained miners with the result that rather than mining of limestone in the state most of the limestone are dynamite blasted with consequent damage to the earth substructures in the state and might overtime leads to earth tremor and landslide. Where limestone quarries are presently being worked.
