NSW quarry ready for off-the-shelf sale


A quartz quarry is on sale 140km north of Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, fully approved with plant and equipment on offer – and ready to operate.

Originally a family-owned business, Sly’s Quarry has been developed into a 500,000 tonne per year operation.

The hard sandstone is 90 per cent quartz and holds its own niche in the north of New South Wales.

Approval has been secured to operate until 2041 and the business has held contracts from the Queensland border (140 kilometres north) down to Port Macquarie (300km south).

Ray White Yamba real estate agent Daniel Kelly told Quarry the local area is ready for this quarry to take it to the next level.

“There’s a fair bit of development underway in our area including land subdivisions and other projects. This particular quarry just secured a contract for one of those subdivisions,” Kelly said.

The list of plant and equipment available to bundle with the property includes everything from loaders to excavators, crushers and trucks.

Kelly said the property was ready and waiting for the next family to pick up where the previous operator left off.

“There’s a fairly long list of plant and equipment that can be included so it can essentially be a fully operational quarry ready for the new owner on the settlement day,” he said.

The property is less than 20 minutes’ drive from the local beach while being set amongst several of NSW’s renowned National Parks.

Kelly concluded this is just what many of his clients are searching for, making Sly’s Quarry an ideal place to take up a business.

“Nowadays, there’s a split between people looking for a regional or coastal lifestyle and this property presents the opportunity to do both,” he said.
