Nerimbera Quarry

Holcim’s Nerimbera Quarry is located at Arnold Drive, Nerimbera, positioned to supply building and infrastructure projects in both the Livingstone Shire and Rockhampton Regional Council areas.


The Quarry has been operational since the 1960s and is located within a Key Resource Area (KRA No. 21). As the primary hard rock resource in the area, the hard rock extracted from the Quarry is an essential element in the making of concrete (for footpaths, houses etc.).


The quarry supplies major projects including the Rockhampton Northern Access Upgrade and Yeppoon Bypass, as well as key local projects and operators, such as marinas, asphalt manufacturers, concrete suppliers, rail ballast and road repairs.

Holcim’s key customers in the region, who purchase hard rock, include Department of Transport and Main Roads, Queensland Rail, Rockhampton Regional Council and Livingstone Shire Council as well as local construction companies who facilitate the development and maintenance of infrastructure, housing and community assets in the region.

About the project

Holcim’s Nerimbera Quarry has recommenced investigations into the continuation of its operations, with investigations currently being carried out to extend the quarry’s extraction area to the south-east of the existing operation.

Extending the quarry within Holcim’s land, rather than developing a new, greenfield quarry elsewhere, will minimise impacts to the environment and community, secure supply of highquality quarry materials for the region, provide affordable quarry products and secure local jobs through local supply.

The project is currently in the early design and planning stages, with Holcim proposing to lodge a development application with Livingstone Shire Council and the State government by about mid2022. Should Holcim be successful in gaining approval, operations will commence moving into the extended extraction area in about 2023.
