“A mountain of rock” up for sale in Coffs Harbour


The team at real estate agent LJ Hooker Coffs Harbour have come to establish an intimate knowledge of a quarry listing not 20 minutes drive from their seaside town, as the phrase “siliceous meta Greywacke metamorphic rock” now rolls of their tongue for anyone interested in entering the quarry game.

Resource studies have shown that this large deposit set in over a 44.31 Ha site is particularly suitable for road base aggregates, concrete and marine seawall applications.

The vendor has owned the property for some years and has had many discussions with quarry professionals and end users as to the feasibility of extraction and usefulness of the rock.

They are looking to sell outright on the estimates that he has obtained or he would entertain selling with an ongoing royalty per tonne.

LJ Hooker have various reports available from professional bodies and information from the vendor which can be made available with the tender documents.

The property is offered in good faith and it is up to interested parties to verify the reliability of all information by their own due diligence.

The successful buyer will be buying as is and will need to start from scratch to acquire development approvals from Council and relevant authorities and comply with all conditions required.

In years to come, the worked site would have the potential to become another water reservoir for Coffs Harbour.

There is a three-bedroom house and shed on the property which can be used as initial site offices.

The property is being offered by tender closing March 31, 2022
