Our main business is quarrying and the supply of gravel materials, road bases and aggregates to the mining and construction industries, and we are accredited with the Department of Main Roads.
We work with, and have developed very strong relationships with, crushing and haulage subcontractors which enables us to deliver high quality product crushed and delivered in accordance with our customers’ requirements. We have state-of-the-art on-board weighing technology fitted to our sales loaders, which guarantees that our clients receive their complete order whilst also reducing haulage costs by avoiding unnecessary trips caused by under loading. This also eliminates the added wait time at weighbridges and ensures the product is delivered to your site with limited interruptions. We are one of the first quarries in the region to establish an on-site, NATA accredited, testing facility.
Quarrico is also able to offer equipment hire services (wet or dry hire), subject to availability.
The majority of our customers are mining and civil construction companies and contractors working in the Bowen Basin. We are in the process of establishing more quarries in the Isaac and Whitsunday Regional Council areas, which will allow us to better serve a broader region.
Located on Moranbah Access Road, approximately six kilometres from the Peak Downs Highway turnoff, north of the Moranbah Airport.
Located off the Winchester Downs Road near Peak Downs Mine, this quarry is located approximately 3km west of the Isaac River Highway near the Moranbah Access Road turnoff.
Situated on Fitzroy Development Road south-west of Nebo, approximately seven kilometres south of the Peak Downs Highway turnoff.
In addition to our standard products, we also have the capacity to crush to order to meet our customers’ specifications. At Quarrico we understand that some projects require specialised materials and that our standard products may not always meet our customers’ specifications. Our dedicated team is happy to work with our customers to identify their product needs and determine what we can do to meet them.
Our quarries are fully-equipped with all the machinery and tools necessary to produce a wide range of high quality gravel and rock products. We have crushing, screening, loading and excavating equipment, which is regularly maintained and serviced. We also have a pugmill, which allows us to mix materials with water and ensure it is evenly saturated. Pugged material provides much better and more even compaction, which is an essential requirement for some of our customers.
We are also licenced to operate a mobile batch plant, which allows us to set up concrete production on our customers’ sites, thereby eliminating haulage costs for the supply of concrete. This is useful for those of our customers with ongoing construction projects that require a near constant supply of concrete.
