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.


Gathering this information, and producing the annual mineral statement, is DfE's only responsibility in respect of quarries; planning permission for quarries is issued by the Councils and Department for Infrastructure. Links to the Annual Mineral Statements for the indicated years are below.

The latest data covers the 2022 year. 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 the period.
