This quarry is located to the northeast of Montcada Hill quarry and in front of the town of La Llagosta and close to Can Rovira o Rovireta quarry.

It consists mainly of partially altered granite with hydrothermal veinlets of various minerals. Fluorite and galena plays no important role at this quarry.

Quarry is worked (2012) by the company CANTERAS CANRO SA.
