Archeological findings in Lommel
The new quarry that was opened next to the current quarry in Lommel, is one of the discovery points for prehistoric artefacts. Sibelco gave archeologists of the Catholic University of Leuven and VIOE (Vlaams Instituut voor Onroerend Erfgoed) the opportunity to inventorise everything before the extraction started in those zones. They collected over 30,000 artefacts from the stone age (12,000 years ago). Blokwaters, a moor region on the site, will not be exploited for this purpose.
