Caborco Oscuro - Quarries
Caborco Oscuro extracts its slate from three different quarries where the exploitation is thought for the slate elaboration before being sent to different markets. In the last years, Caborco Oscuro has realized an important effort in technological innovation, that has permitted to count with the most important machinery for the slate extraction and also to count with the last systems of sawn off and diamanted yarn that permit a better profitability of its material.
After the extraction of the slate in the quarry, the slate is transferred to one of the two wokshops owned by Caborco Oscuro. There, the big blocks of slate are first cut into pieces by great automated sawmills and then exfoliated by specialised operators that realize all their work manually. The posterior step is the cut of the slate to the size and form elected by the client, and its selection and put on place on slate-jails before its distribution.
