The Department of Natural Resources regulates the provincial quarry industry which provides many jobs to Newfoundlanders and Labradorians and supports the development of infrastructure, and energy and mining projects. From 2011 to 2015, an average of eight million tonnes of quarry material was produced and used in the province annually. Approximately 2,000 quarry permits are issued each year to more than 600 applicants in Newfoundland and Labrador.
