Miniera Carcoselle (Miniera Rossi; Cava Rossi), Possagno, Provincia di Treviso, Veneto, Italia


The Carcoselle cement mine (quarry) works an exposure of the sedimentary sequence named “Scaglia”. The upper part of the sequence, called “Scaglia Cinerea”, consists of Lower Eocene marls and finely stratified limestones varying in colour from grey, to grey-brown and olive-grey; the underlying stratum, called “Scaglia Variegata”, consists of an irregular sequence of micritic marlous limestones, calcareous marlstones, and clay marls (reddish or white-greeinish in colour); the lower part of the sequence, the so-called “Scaglia Rossa”, is a reddish micritic limestone of Upper Cretaceous age. In the period 1982-83 quarrying involved the so-called "Livello Bonarelli", a layer of grey-black to ochraceous marls and siltstones, rich in organic matter, located between the rocks of “Scaglia Variegata” and “Scaglia Rossa”. This layer have frequently yielded pyrite nodules up to 7 cm, as well as pyritised vertebrate skeletons. Scalenohrdral calcite crystals are found in "Scaglia Rossa" fissures, dendritic manganese oxides in “Scaglia Variegata” and “Scaglia Rossa” limestones.
