A very excited Joe Hunter after securing the MIMICO Award

The MIMICO Environment and Community Award, was judged by Bernie Napp. He said that Blackhead Quarries had won against three other impressive candidates through being the first quarry in the country to use an electric truck. The 30 tonne truck, imported from China, costs about $4 a day to run, carting 600 tonnes of aggregate at the Logan Point Quarry in Dunedin, as opposed to burning 80-90 litres of diesel.
