Africa Range – Environmentally concious

 
PROCESSES
 
Most formations of stone are huge batholiths (large mass of intrusive igneous rock believed to have solidified deep within the earth). Quarry locations are tiny in comparison to the size of these formations.

However, the Namibian Desert has an almost mystical landscape. There are giant dunes, vistas of rocky hills and dry riverbeds frequented by ostriches and springbok. To preserve the beauty of the desert, quarry sites are limited to designated areas.

Prior to the start of any quarrying activity, an environmental plan must be submitted and approved by the Ministry of Mines. The plan must define the procedures of quarrying that will best protect and minimise our presence in the desert. The quarries are continually monitored to ensure procedures are being followed, and to determine where and how they can be improved upon.

Unlike most quarried or mined materials being removed from our earth, natural stone has a relatively low impact on our environment. The extraction process does not require the use of any chemicals. Only water is used at quarry sites to cool and lubricate diamond abrasives to cut the stone. Natural stone quarries do not produce toxic waste piles which can pollute the surrounding environment.

Because of the low impact that quarrying natural stone has on our environment, it has become one of many products that meet the requirements for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification. LEED, a voluntary program established by the U.S. Green Building Council, sets environmentally friendly construction guidelines for sustainable and energy-efficient buildings.

All manufactured or processed materials we use in our homes adversely affect our global and local environments. The best we can do is to choose products which will have the least detrimental affects on our surroundings. Natural stone is the natural choice.
