Is it true that rock dust accelerates composting? Can this be done by simply adding dirt to the compost pile?

I've come across this idea while I was researching rock dust and how to make it more bioavailable to plants, since there is much controversy about the beneficial impact of rock dust on crop yield and plant growth.

What are your thoughts on this?
