A primary block can vary in size depending on the stone type, and up to 1000 cubic metres, 2700 tons!

The Red Rock Quarries

Since the ridge which was quarried is a large competent mass of stone, quarrying involved cutting the stone rather than cleaving it. For each large block of stone quarried, channeling machines which rode on temporary rails made cuts along each side of the block; holes were drilled beneath the block; and black powder was detonated in these holes ...

Lueders Quarry

The channelizer can cut a groove as deep as 3 meters, as wide as 5 cm and as long as 3 meters, or even more. When a single block is required, grooves of required depth and length are first cut at the back and sides of the working face of the quarry. Holes are then drilled from the free front side horizontally to meet the back channel at its base.

The Quarry

The wall exists because it is not suitable for quarry stone as it is actually a series of geologic dikes, formed when a fault line repeatedly opened up by a foot or two over millions of years. The magma that filled the cracks cooled too quickly and is more or less shattered (doesn''t yield large blocks).
