As characteristic of the entire sector, the initial pioneering activity was purely artisanal. This was followed by progressive additions and major renovations. Extraction is one of the most important and decisive phases in the company's operations. 50,000 m3 of granite are extracted annually. Only 20,000 m3, or the equivalent of 60,000 tons, are processed into finished product.
Cutting with diamond wire-steel cable (covered with self-locking rubber and with 42 diamond sectors) has promoted optimal extraction levels in recent decades.
Our mining area is located 150 meters above our workshops and we rely on six employees. The extracted blocks are lowered with the help of a massive crane, capable of lifting up to 40 tons. The material is then divided into different categories for processing including: frame blocks for floors, cladding, window sills, tables, paving, sculpture, road kerbs, dies, paving stones, wall stones and other items.
