About Volcanic Resources
This unique volcanic deposit of rhyolite has quarrying history dating back to 1897, when gravel was dug by pick and shovel and loaded on to horse and cart for use on local roads.
It remained a minor operation until 1996 when acquired by M.A.Roche Group Pty Ltd, who saw enormous potential to develop it from a one product quarry to a range of fourteen different products for landscaping and civil construction uses.
