 Post subject: Living on an old quarry
PostPosted: Sat Oct 26, 2013 11:10 pm 
Hi guys, I didn't know where to post this, so I'll put it here.
A buddy of mine has a question. He wants to know how to tell if he lives on top of an old limestone quarry. How can you tell?

Does he live at the bottom of a big pit or if its like the quarries around here he would be at the bottom of a lake.

I guess I don't understand your question. A quarry is a big hole in the ground where rock has been removed. If there is no crater sized hole or cliff face where rock has been blasted then there is no quarry. It should be very obvious to even someone who didn't know anything about quarrying.
