General Description of the Quarry
The quarry is composed by several limestone beds, the varieties usually known as Encarnadão "Chainette" and St. Florient Rose also being extracted in addition to the Lioz Creme one. Its upper zone is very thick and intensely karstified and fractured, then being less interesting. The general attitude of the beds is sub horizontal and their average attitude is N-S to N 15º E, dipping 70º to 80º towards W. The blocks extracted are of small and medium size and their cutting is generally performed according to the rift plane. The quarry shows some reserves.
