Location description

This location is a former waste tip from the Karl-Friedrich mine in Aachen-Richterich. Up until the nineties, one could find plant fossils from the Carboniferous (Westfalian A) here. After that, natural vegetation took over, and access is prohibited ever since as a safety precaution. On the fields surrounding the place, you can find the occasional fossil.
