Behavior displayed by a thermoluminescence (TL) glow peak as radiation dose increases in limestone of Patharia mines of Chhattisgarh in India { Location : Durg (dist.) Elevation 274 meters, E 81o 22’ 48” N – 21o 23’ 40.5’’ way point 196} have been reported. The glow curve of Limestone peak is observed at 306.1℃ & slightly shifting of peak is observed at low temperature side. The value of activation energy and order of kinetics for 306.1℃ peak suggest low fading & high stability.
