Eugui, Esteríbar (Esteribar), Navarra (Nafarroa), España


Calvo and Sevillano, 1991:

"The two magnesite quarries near Egui are located approximately at the km-33 and km-34 markers on the Comarcal 135 Road. The nearest town is Eugui, 4 km to the south, in the municipio of Esteribar, Navarra Province.
One quarry consists of a large, flooded pit with small, active workings around the margin. The other (western) quarry is more important from a specimen standpoint. The quarries are operated by Magnesitas de Navarra, which owns a treatment plant at Zubiri, 15 km south of the quarries. There the magnesite is purified by heavy-liquid separation and is sintered at 1800°C to produce refractory bricks.
The locality name given to this occurrence on some old labels and in early published reports is "Asturreta" (Gonzalez and Arrese, 1977; Gomez de Llarena, 1965)."
