Lunchtime Lecture - Quarry Restoration

Lunchtime Lecture - Quarry Restoration

Andy Littler has spent 45 years in quarrying and quarry products and along the way developed a passion for creating natural habitats at his operations, both during and after extraction. The talk focuses on practical examples of these works and is visual rather than text heavy. A section has been on earthmoving plant and crushing to slant the subject to its audience. During his career he has been involved in ground calcium carbonates, agricultural lime, silica sand and managed "Tarmac Topsport", suppliers of sports sands, which some members may be familiar with. He will be very happy to take questions on any quarry or quarry product related subject.

Andy Littler is a Graduate Geologist, Chartered Mineral Processing Engineer and Member of the Institute of Quarrying. In retirement he gives free on site advice, talks and runs courses on the potential to increase biodiversity in working and closed mineral extraction sites. Andy lives on the Dorset coast where he practices what he preaches in his unkempt wildlife garden.
