Niedermendig is a northern precinct of the city of Mendig. Specimens labelled as coming from Niedermendig originate from one of the nearby quarries:
- Basalt quarries (e.g. Wingertsberg mountain)
- Pumice quarries in the Laach lake volcanic complex
The basalt quarries are listed as sub-localities to this entry. The pumice quarries, owing to a different geology, are listed separately (see http://www.mindat.org/loc-122498.html).
No minerals currently recorded for this locality.
This geological map and associated information on rock units at or nearby to the coordinates given for this locality is based on relatively small scale geological maps provided by various national Geological Surveys.
