Fully equipped quarry ser­vices

The Australian Mining Review - - MINING IN THE TERRITORY -

AL­LAN King and Sons Con­struc­tions (AKSC) is a lo­cal, pri­vately owned civil con­struc­tion com­pany spe­cial­is­ing in bulk earth­works, all as­pects of civil con­struc­tion, drainage works, and con­crete works, along with crush­ing and screen­ing of con­struc­tion ma­te­ri­als at its fully es­tab­lished quarry.

The com­pany has a num­ber of other leases sup­ply­ing prod­ucts such as sand, gravel, fill and top soil.

It also owns and op­er­ates a va­ri­ety of crush­ers and screens ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing var­i­ous sized ag­gre­gates, fine crushed rock, sands, and more.

The com­pany has been in op­er­a­tion in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory for more than 20 years, orig­i­nat­ing in Kather­ine where it was formed by di­rec­tors’ Al­lan and San­dra King.

The com­pany has since ex­panded its op­er­a­tion to in­clude Dar­win, now the lo­ca­tion of its head of­fice.

Along­side AKSC, Kings Quarry, which com­menced op­er­a­tions in 2010 is lo­cated about 107km south­east of Dar­win, near Mount Bundy.

A per­ma­nent camp and work­shop on site al­low staff at Kings Quarry to stay on site when needed, and all main­te­nance and re­pairs are car­ried out by its own qual­i­fied me­chan­ics and boil­er­mak­ers.

Orig­i­nally es­tab­lished to sup­ply its core di­vi­sion with all quarry prod­ucts re­quired for civil works, Kings Quarry has since ex­panded op­er­a­tions to sup­ply var­i­ous projects through­out the Dar­win area as well as re­mote re­gions.

Kings Quarry also sup­plies ma­te­rial such as as­phalt pre­mix blends, con­crete pre­mix and seal­ing ag­gre­gate to lo­cal batch plants, brick plants, as well as bi­tu­men and as­phalt com­pa­nies.

The installation of a fully cer­ti­fied weigh­bridge and el­e­vated ac­cess track has en­abled the quarry to sup­ply gov­ern­ment, de­fence and other con­tracts – with ac­cess in both wet and dry sea­sons.

Kings Quarry’s own test­ing lab on site en­sures that prod­uct is within spec­i­fi­ca­tion dur­ing man­u­fac­ture, with cer­ti­fied test­ing tak­ing place be­fore ma­te­rial leaves site.
