Geology site description:

The old Blankenberg quarry is a geological monument, close to the town of Cadier and Keer. In this quarry, the contact between the Gulpen Formation and the Maastricht Formation is exposed.

Most prominent is a very thick, grey flint layer, which probably represents layers 6-7 or 6 to 9. A concise description and a geological profile are indicated on an info sign in the quarry. 

As the quarry is a geological monument, there is free access. Visitors are requested not to take fossils from the quarry face.
