Heavy rains trigger landslip at Mackay region quarry
A quarry operator is in the process of clearing a landslip on site after recent heavy rains.
The landslip occurred in a "non-operational" area of Farleigh Quarry on Friday, January 15.
Hanson, a national building and construction materials company, described the incident in a statement as a "limited landslip known as a rotational failure", on the non-operational hillside at the Farleigh Habana Rd site.
"There were no injuries as a result of the landslip, no damage to property and no disruption to operations as the area affected is well outside the quarry extraction zone," the statement said.
"Hanson has notified the relevant authorities and has had specialist consultants inspect the site and to provide remediation advice."
The company said a clean-up plan was being implemented to "repair the hillside" at Farleigh Quarry.
Costs for the repairs was not provided.
The company website states Hanson used world-class technologies to "supply a comprehensive range of high-quality concrete, aggregates and sad", and has an extensive production and logistics network across Australia.
Hanson is part of the HeidelbergCement Group that employs more than 59,000 people across five continents, the website states.
