Spanish term or phrase: EL BLOQUE QUE LIMITAN
Once the mining bed is prepared, the task of extracting the blocks is undertaken, which is done using one of a variety of methods. ***Todos tienen en común (1) que deben dañar lo menos posible TANTO EL BLOQUE QUE LIMITAN como el macizo rocoso residual***, (2) que se deben orientar según las direcciones de anisotropía y discontinuidades del macizo, y (3) que el tamaño máximo de bloque tiene, además de las limitaciones naturales de las discontinuidades, otra limitación por el tamaño de las instalaciones de tratamiento y elaboración de piezas comerciales.

I don't get what the LIMITAN in plural refers to. Ideally I would like to see a translation of the section in ***

The field is GEOSTATISTICS/MINING (slate).
