Coromandal Quarry Aggregate Barging

H G Leach & Company Ltd is a privately owned quarrying and contracting company, based at Paeroa in the Thames Valley.  The company sells quarry aggregate into the Auckland market.  The aggregate is transported from Kopu in the Coromandel to Henderson in Auckland by road in truck and trailer units.

The company recognised that transport of the aggregate by barge was a possibility and undertook trials to prove the viability of barging.  The trials proved the physical feasibility of barging but demonstrated that barging was not financially viable.

Warwick Walbran Consulting Limited was engaged by the Waikato Regional Council (Environment Waikato) to detail the background, strategic consistency analysis, confirm the capital requirements and to undertake the economic analysis of the investment proposal.
