The Quarry is where you can hire a Quarrier to dig the quarry. The Quarry will be a pit of varied size (simple quarry is 1 x 1 chunks, medium is 2 x 2) to collect larger amounts of stone type blocks. The Quarry will only produce the blocks it digs out. It will not produce additional ore blocks like the Mine.

Note: You must first hire a Quarrier at a Mine before assigning them to a Quarry.
