Primarily quarrying granite for road aggregate, beneath an overburden of clays and Keuper marl mudstones. Operated by Midland Quarry Products Limited. The site occupies 243 hectares and can produce 5 million tonnes of aggregate annually.

The 'Copper Lode' and associated secondary mineralisation, for which the site is renowned, was blasted, and removed in the late 1990's. No further copper mineralisation has since been discovered.
