Status: in use

A quarry is an area of land used for surface mineral extraction like stones, gravel, sand, clay or a surface mine for coal or ore.

Tagging

Place a node node or draw an area area around the quarry, and tag it as landuse=quarry.

When used on areas this tag should only be applied to the area in which actual mining is performed. Connected areas like ore processing facilities or machine maintenance areas should usually be tagged landuse=industrial.

Additional tags

  • name=* - the name of the quarry
  • operator=* - the company operating the quarry
  • resource=* - the mineral resource being extracted

Rendering

  • The standard symbols used widely internationally for a quarry mapped as a node are Mine1.svgor Quarry.svg
  • Quarry mapped as an area, Mapnik: Rendering-landuse-quarry-mapnik.png

Former quarries

Quarries that are out of use but still carry many characteristics of a quarry shall be tagges as landuse=quarry and disused=yes.

Quarries that are out of use for a longer time and not any more clearly recognized as a quarry shall not be mapped as landuse=quarry but only with lifecycle prefix abandoned: while the scarps may be mapped with man_made=embankment. Maybe it's meaningful to use note=*, description=* or the like to transport further information, e.g. that this structure has been a quarry.
