Holcim Information Sheets on Weston Quarries, FAQs

Media Release: 10 November 2006

Holcim Information Sheets on Weston Quarries, Frequently Asked Questions

Holcim (New Zealand) Ltd has prepared two more information sheets on its Weston Option cement plant proposal.

Information sheet No. 8, Weston Option quarries, details the two quarries that would be built near the cement plant if it went ahead. The main quarry, behind the Whitstone escarpment, would be a combined limestone and siltstone quarry. There would be a smaller tuff (soft volcanic rock) quarry to the north of the main quarry, on the lower flat sloping paddock beneath the escarpment.

The information sheet provides two photo-montages of how the quarries would be expected to look after 30 years of operation, taking into account some of the landscape rehabilitation and restoration works that would be completed. There is also a plan map of the two quarries, showing their maximum footprints, as well as cross sections.

Information sheet No. 9, Frequently Asked Questions, brings together the common questions that people have asked the Holcim team over the past few months, and answers them based on the latest results of the technical investigations.

These two information sheets are being sent to people who have asked Holcim for information on its Weston Option, as it becomes available. People can simply ask Holcim to go on the distribution list for information sheets.

Information sheet No. 10, Servicing (water, sewage, power), is expected to be available in December.
