Excursion of the Vicenice Quarry

January 4, 2019

On Thursday, November 29, 2018, the students of Vicenice grammar school, whose task is to design the most suitable way to extract mineral resources under the "Earth's Wealth" competition from the Institute of Geological Sciences, visited the Vicenice quarry.

Our great colleague, Sebastián Hreus, the project specialist, showed the students round the quarry, told them the most important and interesting facts about the quarry work and practically described the quarry processes.

We would like to thank all the colleagues who have made the excursion happen and, above all, to Mr. Sebastian Hreus and the quarry Manager Mr. Michal Široký.
