Quarry Expansion Good for the Environment

By on May 31, 2017

BRENDAN TIPPLE, Sales & Account Manager for Lima South Quarry reports on the quarries expansion.

Recently the LS Quarry Group obtained approval to expand their extraction area at Lima South Quarry under an approved Work Plan by the Department of Economic Development, Jobs,
Transport and Resources (DEDJTR).LSQ - 2 pg 30

The expansion provides ongoing job security to around thirty five local people employed by the LS Quarry Group, as the life of the quarry is extended by at least fifty years, which is fantastic news
for local employment.

It is also good news for the environment as part of the expansion the LS Quarry Group purchased a 200-acre bush block nearby. The existing trees on the land are reserved to remain for future
generations as an offset for the area to be cleared by the quarry expansion at Lima South.

In another win for the environment the LS Quarry Group are  working with the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBCMA) to reuse the trees removed at the quarry in
Lima South.

The GBCMA are using these trees to re-snag local rivers and streams to improve fish habitat which is proven to increase overall fish numbers and enhance aquatic life in the waterways.

We are pleased to be able to help the environment while at the same time securing the future of the Lima South Quarry and our employees” said Managing Director of the LS Quarry Group
Mr. Ashley Day.
