Operating in Perryfield quarry, the already exposed face allows us to mine directly into the whitbed, mid tier and roach limestone beds. This gives us access to over 680,000m³ of reserve with 2 portal entrances.
The main limestone bed we are extracting from mining is Perryfield whitbed. With further beds following on in a phased extraction, as we progress further into the reserves.
A Portland stone mining operation consists of extracting dimension stone from underground. Removing the excavation process, found in open cast quarrying, allows us to reach suitable stone. Mining lets us access future reserves whilst reducing our impact on the local community and environment.
