The geological nature reserve “Corabia quarry”

It is located in the South-eastern part of the Someşul Rece village of Gilău commune.

The protected area is an area of the Corabia hill woodlands and is related to the existence of a quarry. This was used for construction of the Talieni dam from Someşu Rece hydropower. Stripping the slope and erosion phenomena that followed led to the disclosure of a very interesting geological structures which runs vertically. Thus, in this area, we meet metamorphic rocks (gneisses, crystalline schist) in various stages of metamorphosis.
