Paul Everett, a geologist from the British Geology Survey team, will be visiting Westray from 11th to 15th January to conduct the quarry assessments.
He has been tasked to identify up to 4 potential sites and give recommendations on the quality and quantity, likely productivity and costs associated with each site. The Trust then intends producing a paper, to be distributed to the community for further approval.
His visit will begin with a tour of the island, from which land owners may be contacted, requesting permission to conduct a sampling exercise on their land.
If you have any questions about this, please contact Andy in the Trust office on 01857 677858.
