Overburden Stripping and Site Rehabilitation
Location: Holcim Packenham Quarry, VIC
Start: December 2015
End: May 2016
This project involved stripping 290,000m3 of overburden material in order to expose the rock shelf ready for quarry extraction. Stripped materials were then placed as a 1V:1.5H fill batter enabling the rehabilitation of a 200m long section, 30m high portion of quarry wall. Surplus excavated material was also used to fill low points in the quarry floor enabling better control of stormwater.
