  • What happens next? :: Nordkalk
    have acquired a wealth of knowledge about the conditions in the area where and how to conduct the operations how the water will be affected during the different phases and which preventive measures need to be put in place before the quarry is worked out Preparations for the quarry will begin after there is a decision on the permit The construction work has been planned in detail and will be conducted with the greatest consideration for the surrounding environment The work will begin with clearing the trees and removing the layers of soil covering the deposit The soil will be deposited close to the quarry to be reused in the area s restoration Next we will construct roads to the quarry excavate a crusher pit and build an 8 kilometer long conveyor belt We will also install power lines and build a workshop and staff facilities Protective ditches will be dug around the quarry during each new excavation phase to direct surface water and shallow groundwater coming in from upstream which currently drains into the quarry area A treatment plant will also be built to treat water entering the quarry for instance through precipitation Pipes will be installed to return the purified water to the surrounding areas The construction phase is expected to take a little more than a year When the operations are ready to commence the excavation will be carried out through drilling and blasting The stone will be crushed on site and transported by conveyor to the sorting plant in Storugns There the limestone will be sorted according to size and quality in line with market demand The stone will be loaded and shipped out to customers or our production units for further processing Some of the extracted and sorted limestone will be processed into burnt lime
