Geology site description:
In the Geul valley near Epen in the Heimansgroeve (quarry) and Cotessergroeve (quarry) the oldest rocks of the Netherlands are exposed at the surface. The sandstone and shale are from the Upper Carboniferous period. Ripplemarks were found, and this indicates a nearshore deposit environment. The layers are not tilted due to folding. The Heimansgroeve is named after Eli Heimans, a leading conservationist. Both quarries are a geological monument. Information panels are available on site.
