Location of Example: 152°28'10" East, 24°51'33" South
Distinctive Characteristics:
  • Sand/gravel quarries consist of a series of small to medium sized pits.
  • Infrastructure associated with quarries varies according to size and ownership. Small quarries used for intermittent road repairs and owned by local government authorities are not likely to have much associated infrastructure. Large commercial operations close to large cities are more likely to have extensive crushing, stockpiling and administrative facilities.
