Limestone quarry operating since the 1940s consisting of an upper and lower pit. Upper quarry contains irregular occurences of calcite, fluorite and barite; while the lower pit contains a lower vug zone (recently exposed) with dolomite, calcite and minor fluorite. Upper vuggy zone contains fluorite (yellow, purple - various shades - colorless), calcite, dolomite (very large crystals of a pastel-pink color), chalcopyrite, malachite, and occasional drusy quartz.

Access to this quarry is currently severely restricted. Successful mineral collecting is highly sporadic.
