What is Quarrying? Quarrying is simply the extraction of natural resources like rocks, sand and gravel to help create almost every structure in the built environment.

Quarries produce a range of useful materials. In Australia, the most common materials extracted are construction aggregates such as crushed rock, sand or gravel. These abundant, yet essential raw materials, are the foundation of our homes, schools, hospitals, roads and almost all aspects of the built environment that we depend on.
