Solnhofen quarrying pattern



I have seen photos of the Solnhofen quarry that show a rather large
operation.

Are the limestone miners currently digging into deeper (older) layers of
the Solenhoffen, or is most of the current quarrying occuring along the
sides of the pit?

How much deeper does the micritic lagoonal facies go in this area?

TIA,
