This Environmental Impact Statement proposed quarrying of clay/shale and sandstone/laminite over a 63 ha area at Badgerys Creek with the excavations being rehabilitated through backfilling with solid waste. The project site is just north of the potential second Sydney Airport site in the City of Penrith.
An estimated 17 million tonnes of light and dark‐firing clays and shales were identified on the project site with a further six million tonnes of sandstone/laminite needed to be quarried to remove these materials.
