New publisher for Quarry print and digital platforms

A new chapter begins in Quarry Magazine’s 35-year history, as Prime Creative Media takes over the publishing reigns.

Prime Creative Media is excited to announce that it is the new Publisher of Quarry Magazine. The leading publication, its website (, and its annual directories are now being operated out of Prime Creative Media’s offices, in a continued partnership with the Institute of Quarrying Australia (IQA).

Prime Creative Media has a history of supporting the growth of the resources sector with a number of relevant titles and events. Quarry will be in good company, joining Australian Mining, Safe to Work, Oil & Gas Industry News, Rail Express, Prime Mover and Australian Bulk Handling Review.

“We are excited to work closely with the IQA on the future of this publication, and its role in developing this exciting and important industry,” Print Creative Media CEO John Murphy said. “We will do so by supporting the IQA’s mission to advance the science of quarrying in Australia and overseas in the interests of the public at large. It’s a mission that aligns well with Prime Creative Media’s purpose of growing individuals, organisations and industries.”

Prime Creative Media has been working in partnership with both the IQA and Gunnamatta Media, publisher of Quarry since 2005, to make the transition as smooth as possible for its readers and advertisers.

“We will be continuing to build upon the great work of the IQA and Gunnamatta Media, with further investments into the brand, including new digital platforms that will be launched in the coming weeks,” Murphy said. “Prime Creative Media’s success has been built on the success and growth of our clients, and we appreciate the opportunity to serve this important industry.”

Longstanding editor Damian Christie has joined the Prime Creative Media team.

Prime Creative Media is Australia’s leading B2B publisher, producing more than 27 mastheads, 80 digital platforms, and dozens of major industry events. With offices in both Melbourne and Sydney, Prime Creative Media focuses on high growth industries including advanced manufacturing, transportation, food and beverage, infrastructure and resources, and commercial road transport.
