Quarrying Guidelines
The Geological Survey of Ireland has long enjoyed a mutually-beneficial relationship with the quarrying industry. Many operators have an appreciation of the rocks that they work with, and consequently an empathy with geological heritage values and aims. These collaborative guidelines from the Irish Geological Heritage Programme (IGH) of GSI and the Irish Concrete Federation (ICF) are intended to help all quarry operators follow best practice in addressing geodiversity issues. This will not only assist the IGH programme and update GSI’s databases, but should enhance the industry’s own standing in the community.
