Name(s) in local language(s):Carrière de Beez


Active limestone quarry, located ca. 5 km east of the Namur city centre, north of the village of Beez.

The quarry is currently operated by Sagrex, part of the Heidelbergcement Group, after being taken over from the Gralex Association following their reorganization in 2009. The relationship between the quarry management and mineralogists can be an example for other quarries in the region. Permits to enter the quarry for mineralogical prospection can be requested from the quarry management, and are regularly given to mineral clubs.

Together with the Landelies quarry (http://www.mindat.org/loc-296.html), the Beez quarry is among the finest sources of Belgian calcites.
