- Hard rock quarries are typically sited in foothills flanking urban and peri-urban centres.
- Hard rock quarries are generally composed of one main medium-sized pit and excavated into a hillside.
- The excavation depth is evident by terracing and it's associated shadow signatures.
- In Figure: 188.8.131.52b the spectral signature of the bedrock is dark blue/grey. This should be similar to the spectral signature of rocky slopes and outcrops devoid of vegetation.
