In the upper reaches of Biliy Stream (left branch of Tysa River) on its left bank in impressive area there are located two quarries. In the lower (north-eastern) quarry within carbonaceous-chlorite-sericite mafic schists of Vendian — Lower Cambrian Berlebaska Suite there are exposed white and light-grey marbles. In the upper (south-western) quarry there used to mine Upper Devonian — Lower Carboniferous breccia dolomites (lower portion of Kuzynska Suite) which occur in the phillite pile. This pile rock age was determined by micro-phitofossils 3-4 km to the south in Romania. The outcrop is typical for the carbonate parts of Berlebashska and Kusynska Suites and it has significant scientific value.
Ecological conditions are suitable.
