The quarry is named Davis Quartz and is an active mining location in GTA 5. However, it is rarely a sight to see someone mining there. The location holds importance due to some events in it, whether you are playing offline or online.

Location Of The Quarry

The quarry is located southeast of the Grand Senora Desert, specifically Senora Way. It is one of the isolated locations on the GTA 5 map, the Blaine County area. While you are visiting the place, there is a chance for you to encounter a vehicle that spawns randomly at this location.

  • Baller: An SUV, a 4-door vehicle, which is a decent civilian car in terms of performance.
  • BeeJay XL: The best off-road SUV vehicle.
  • Bison: A pickup truck that can handle the ups and downs of off-roading.
  • Dozer: An industrial-based vehicle uniquely present in the game to use itself in certain ways.
  • Dump: Another industrial vehicle that saves you a million dollars required to purchase in GTA Online.
  • Landstalker: A 4-door SUV car that has appeared throughout the GTA series.
  • Merryweather Dilettante: A compact car that resembles the patrolling agency in GTA 5.
  • Sandking XL: A 4-door pickup truck that is the topmost favorable vehicle for off-roading in GTA 5.

These vehicles will not spawn here altogether; each takes its turn to spawn individually. If you wish for a certain vehicle to spawn, your best bet is to make several trips to the place.

Quarry’s Appearance In GTA 5 Story Missions

In the offline mode, two missions take place in David Quartz. Firstly, a main mission and secondly, a side mission.


While you are playing as any of the protagonists, Lester will assign you a mission to steal a train. This is a setup mission for The Big Score. While you are at it, you must change the train’s track and divert it to the quarry.

Once you stop the train, you must steal the freight engine. Then you will be delivering the engine to the Airstrip, which is owned by Trevor.

Once you have found Maude Eccles, she will give you tasks to hunt down some specific people. Among them, Maude will assign you a task to find and bring Ralph Ostrowski. The guy will be standing isolated somewhere in the quarry.

Approach him by either injuring him or using any suitable methods. Ralph Ostrowski will be guilty of money laundering, but he will explain his crimes when you are taking him to Maude.

The mission will only be available through Trever Phillips. Returning Ralph Ostrowski from the quarry to the Maude location will reward you $10,000 if brought alive. Whereas $5000 is the amount you will get if he is dead.

This is a sequence of the First Dose missions which were added to the game with the Los Santos Drug War update. The procedure for completing this mission is quite drawn-out and requires a race with time. You will start this mission at The Freakshop, and eventually, it will end at The Freakshop as well.

But the work required to reach the end involves going through various places. Among these multiple places, the quarry is one of the most vital places to visit.

During the mission, you must be at the quarry location to turn the train track. It will cause the train to crash, thus, allowing you to loot the chemicals inside of it. Of course, you will fall into an ambush while doing so. Just be sure to equip yourself with the best gear. After that, steal the Brickade 6×6 and deliver it to The Freakshop.

You will get cash ( $30,100 ) and RP as a reward. Also, completing the mission will unlock an Equipment Upgrade for the Acid Lab business.

The quarry is the preeminent location where this mission takes place. The quarry will be heavily guarded by Merryweather at the moment, and the objective will be to take the Insurgents being kept there.

Surely, it is necessary to eliminate the Merryweather so you can peacefully get your hands on the Insurgents. While driving the armored vehicle, the Merryweather will take every measure to stop you from delivering the Insurgents to a drop-off location.

A fair amount of cash will be your reward once you have accomplished the mission. Subsequently, this will be $10,260 for easy mode, $20,520 for normal mode, and $25,650 for hard mode. Moreover, you will unlock Humane Raid – EMP after completing this mission.
