Under Article 18(1) of the Quarries (Northern Ireland) Order 1983 a return is required each year to the Department for the Economy (DfE) in respect of quarries operating in Northern Ireland.

Annual Minerals Statements

Gathering this information and producing the annual mineral statement is DfE's only responsibility in respect of quarries; quarry licences are issued by the Planning Service. A link to the Annual Mineral Statements for the indicated years are below.

Returns have not been published for a number of years so the latest data covers the 2016 year. Data from years 2011 through to 2015 will be published shortly. It should be noted that due to variations in responses for individual years the information presented should not be assumed to represent trends in output over this period.
