2017 Metz !

The Grand Est region counts today around 500 quarries, representing an annual output of 50 million tons of aggregates. Alluvium and massive rock are distributed equally in terms of production.
Metz is at the crossroads of Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany. This represents a source of important exchanges between these countries and therefore of dynamism. The mining past of this region is also a source of activity in the post-mine sector with a need for maintenance and monitoring of former mining sites.
