Recovery of quarrying areas

The Pompeu Velho quarry has been opened recently (2004). Quarrying at current levels is expected to last approximately 50 years.

This computer-design simulation of the recovered Pompeu Velho quarrying area is based on plans already in place for its comprehensive environmental recovery, comprising a revegetated debris mound, a lake in the quarry pit for fish-farming and irrigation and an extensive green meadow.
