Shown are three views of 14GH332, a quarry site used by Native Americans to procure a chert called Smoky Hill Silicified Chalk. These slides were taken by a Kansas Historical Society Archeologist in 2002 and show the cliffs with beds of eroding chert. Though there is evidence of lithic reduction taking place at the site it is unknown when the quarry was used.

Date: 2002
