and how many of them are mines? The thing is, that there are quite
different types of quarries, dependant on what you are after.
This is an example for lignite mining in Germany, where you usually
have huge areas and equipment:

actually there you are after lignite that is quite profund (up to 100 m)

whilst this is what I would expect from quarry:

here they are getting plates and cubes, mostly not too profund, and
generally much smaller areas, but the material is quite hard.
