General Description of the Quarry
In this quarry, a zoned limestone outcrop (over 20 meters thick) is exploited, the beds having attitude N 20º E, 41º E. Very few fractures are observed, among which N 70 to 80º E, 60º S to sub vertical are dominant. An important karstified zone, filled with residual decalcification clay (terra rossa), occurs. The blocks extracted are of medium size. No preferential plane is taken into account in order to obtain good ornamental patterns. Reserves are fair.
