Caption: Limestone from Goukstone Quarry near Keith, Banffshire.
Description: A mid-grey medium-grained limestone from Goukstone Quarry, 250 yards east of Goukstone Farm five miles north-east of Keith, Banffshire. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7661. The limestone, which was worked for roadstone, is a grey, banded, medium-grained, slightly flaggy type with a few black schist partings, the stone appears to be of fairly good quality. Joints in the limestone are thickly coated with calcite. The general dip is to south-east at 15 degrees, but there is a flattish anticline at the north end of the quarry, with a slight pitch to north-east. The thickness of the limestone is at least 25 feet. The face of the quarry was 20 feet high, and overburden did not amount to more than 4 feet. The reserves were classed as large.
