Nevertheless the government approved a permit to quarry diabase for hardcore, to provide aggregate for making concrete and for road building. However, the crushed diabase was found to be unsuitable for this purpose, so the business made a loss and had to be shut down after a few years.
Today, there are great views from the edge of the old diabase quarry. The outlook over Tore mosse and Torsjön, Dettern and Frugårdsundet – the former ford road – with Lake Vänern near the horizon, all framed by Halleberg and Floslätten, creates a captivating panorama. NOTE! You visit the lookout point at your own risk, there is no fence!
