clay quarry

loam/clay loam/sandy loam are all forms of clay - right? But whatever the case, I think you would just say clay quarry rather than loam quarry. You could then qualify it as follows:

XXX has its own clay quarry, from which it extracts 66,000 cubic metres of sandy loam per year

1. Characteristics and use
Raw materials for production of bricks include a variety of mostly sedimentary rocks such as loess, loams, clays and claystones, marls, weathered shales, etc. The raw material must contain two main components - plastic and opening - which are proportional in the material itself, or optimum ratio is reached by their mixing. The prevailing component in the mixture forms the base whereas the complementary component, which is correcting the properties of the material,serves as a plasticizing agent or an opening component. Harmful substances in production of bricks are mostly carbonates, gypsum, siderite, organic matter, larger fragments of rocks, etc.

not fo grading


"open-pit" употребляется только тогда, когда извлекается не весь материал, а добываемый материал приходится отделять от массы другой породы как при добыче золота, а суглинки, как и песок, известняк, извлекаются полностью. В этом случае используются "quarry".
