Lemma 10.50.8. Let $A$ be a valuation ring. For any prime ideal $\mathfrak p \subset A$ the quotient $A/\mathfrak p$ is a valuation ring. The same is true for the localization $A_\mathfrak p$ and in fact any localization of $A$.
Proof. Use the characterization of valuation rings given in Lemma 10.50.4. $\square$
