Flagstaff Gully Rd , Hobart Lindisfarne TAS 7015


A quarry operator’s inventive solution to a challenging problem has won Hanson a National Award.
Hanson’s Flagstaff Gully Quarry in Lindisfarne, about 10km east of Hobart, Tasmania, was presented with the Environmental Innovation Award at the Cement Concrete and Aggregates Australia Environmental, Health and Safety Awards in Melbourne on 27 October 2016.
The site, which has been operating since the 1960s, is notable for being developed on the eastern side of the Meehan Range at an elevation of 330m. Incomplete earthworks meant the only way to the main crushing site was via a dirt road over a steep incline, preventing access to heavy haulage transport.
Hanson decided to use gravity to its advantage by developing a downhill, power-generating conveyor. An 840m conveyor delivers processed aggregate from a modular Terex MJ47 primary crusher to the main processing plant below.
The movement of the conveyor also generates electricity for use by other equipment on the site.
The site visit will include a roaming tour of the site looking at all the elements in the production cycle to access the stone from the quarry through to final crushing into size ready for use at the batch plant
Quarry Manager Frank Carpenter, Brian Nicholas and Michael Forrest will be our hosts for the site tour via 4WD vehicles
