In June 2001 ICOMOS received information that a travertine quarry below Drevenik, on the south-western edge of the inscribed site, was operational and that quarrying was going ahead. The permit is of limited duration and is scheduled to end in 2002. ICOMOS considers that the main threat to the site comes from the blasting operations, and to a lesser extent, from the large quantity of dust produced by extraction and transportation.
The Bureau may wish to adopt the following decision:
“The Bureau takes note of the report provided by ICOMOS and requests the Slovakian authorities to provide a report on the situation for 1 February 2002, for examination by the twenty-sixth session of the Bureau.”
