Yes, I know. That is the only (serious) place where it is shown and 
described more or less extensively. I have read/used part of the info 
there to model the texture; but the image shown is crap indeed.

I had not looked at the contact info in a serious way until now. Maybe 
they have something better: the quarry seems not to have been in 
exploitation very long. According to the report, between 1991 and (at 
least) 1997, when it is said to be 'closed'.

Fun: I tried to locate the quarry using Google Earth. I came close 
indeed, following the description in the report, but got stuck. I found 

Maybe street/road names changed in the meantime (although I doubt it). 
And no trace of a quarry in that wooded region, although they are 
described to be situated on the top of the hills.
