Boosting Output

Rock Products Ltd have boosted the output from the Waerenga-o-kuri quarry with the installation of a new crushing plant. The plant, which produces 2½ inch basecourse metal and 1¼ inch topcourse metal at 150 tons per hour, is capable of producing 1000 cubic yards per day. Improved techniques have eliminated the problem of plastic fines in the Waerenga-o-kuri metal.
