Lohning quarry (Lohninger quarry), Hüttwinkl valley, Rauris valley, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Austria

Location is approximate, estimate based on other nearby localities.
Latitude & Longitude (WGS84): 47° North , 12° East (est.)
Margin of Error:~17km
Other regions containing this locality:The Alps, Europe
Köppen climate type:Dfb : Warm-summer humid continental climate
Name(s) in local language(s):Lohningbruch (Lohninger Bruch), Hüttwinkltal, Rauriser Tal, Hohe Tauern, Salzburg, Österreich

The bottom of the Hüttwinkl valley is filled with rockslide material, originating from different places in the Krumlbach and upper Hüttwinkl valleys. These boulders are worked in the Kaiserer and Lohning quarries. The minerals, therefore, originate from a large variety of different parageneses.

Presently (2005), the Lohning quarry is not strictly active - the owner excavates marble from an upper quarry and cuts marble plates etc. for subsequent sale.

NOTE: some (or all?) of the "davidite" and "loveringite" reported from here appears to be cleusonite (see also Kaiserer quarry).
