General Description of the Quarry
The quarry is opened on a nearly flat area and shows, at its top, 2 to 4 meters of weathered and very fractured stone. The exploited layer is about 1.5 meters thick and is included on a carbonated formation with E-W, 8º N average attitude. The fracturation of this bed is moderate; so, the extraction of good size blocks is possible. Stone heterogeneities are very rare; only rare yellowish spots and very thin calcitic veins occur. At the middle of the actual quarry, a 1.3 meters thick vertical dolerite vein, striking N-S, is observed. The cut of slabs is usually performed by planes parallel to stratification. The reserves of this type of stone are fair, in the area.
