Doppelsteinbruch Köster - Risse, Hohe Liet, Warstein, Sauerland, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Deutschland


Quarries in Devonian limestones, operated by the Hartsteinwerk Frank Köster GmbH and the Steinwerke F. J. Risse GmbH.

There are actually two quarries, but they appear now as a large single operation.

Inside the quarries, carboniferous clay schists and sandstones are exposed, which are disseminated by hydrothermally formed quartz-baryte veins.

Located on the south slope of Hohe Liet mountain, about 1.5 km southeast of Warstein.

The coordinates mark the center of this area.
