Quarry Zone

Quarry zoning is the designation of specific areas wherein quarrying and related activities may take place. The aim of the project is to assist in the orderly development of the quarry sector, to reduce the wide dispersion of quarries and to satisfy the high demand for aggregate. In keeping with the requirements of the Quarries Control Act (1983), the MGD has embarked on the establishment of quarry zones in close proximity to developing centers, major townships and ports throughout the island of Jamaica.

The zoning project involves:

  • Land Use Survey
  • Geological Mapping
  • Material Sampling and Testing
  • Zone Demarcation
  • Compilation of Data for Reports
