QUARRIES

 

Quarries 

Hazell Bros is the supplier of choice for quarry products used in the building and construction industry. We have a proven record of excellence for workability in roadbase materials and supplying high-quality aggregates.

We currently have three fixed-plant quarries across Tasmania at Leslie Vale, Raeburn and Long Hill, as well as two sand quarries at Flowerdale and Beauty Point with licenses for additional sites in the future. Leslie Vale quarry can produce close to 1M tonnes of crushed dolerite per annum, as well as other materials including white rock and decomposed dolerite.

Our developing Long Hill and Raeburn quarries provide rich sources of dolerite and basalt respectively.

Crushed rock is used as aggregate in concrete, roadbase, sub-base and road sealing; facing stone in building construction; armour stone; riprap to reduce soil erosion effects; and has a variety of uses in the Tasmanian Agricultural sectors.

Our quarry products are tested to NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) standards to ensure we provide our clients with products they can trust. With many satisfied external clients, our quarry products are some of the most sought after in Tasmania.

In addition to our quarries, we operate a modern fleet of track-mounted mobile crushing and screening plants,
which include primary, secondary and tertiary units, screens and pugmills. These can be transported and setup
throughout Australia.

Landfill & Recycling

Hazell Bros has created a recycling centre that brings new opportunities to lessen our impact on our natural surroundings and explore new markets for recycled materials.  After investing in equipment and expertise, Hazell Bros is leading the way with its recycle centre based at its Leslie Vale Quarry.  Materials such as inert building and demolition waste, clean fill, wood, brick, inert synthetic material, glass, concrete, rock and fencing material can all be recycled by Hazell Bros.  Materials can be sourced both internally and externally.

Glass Recycling 

Having a relationship with Veolia to recycle glass has been the catalyst for Hazell Bros to revolutionise glass recycling in Tasmania.

Our research and testing over the past five years has allowed us to create quality recycled glass for use in asphalt production, masonry products and for use in pipe embedment.

ASPHALT PRODUCTION
Research has found that proportions of up to 10-5% of recycled glass sand can be used successfully in most applications. Furthermore, research has identified polished aggregate friction valves (PAFV) can lead to a decreased PSV, improving skid resistance of the pavement.
MASONRY PRODUCTION
Recycled glass sand graded to minus 8.00mm is currently blended with natural sand replacing up to 50% of natural sand product. Conservation of scarce natural resource while improving product sustainability and substantial energy benefits into our environment.
PIPE EMBEDMENT
Recycled glass sand is rapidly becoming accepted and widely used across the civil and building construction industries. This product is easy to work with and is easily compacted in the trench due to the consistency of its grading and angular shape.
