What is the IOQ?
The Institute of Quarrying NZ (Inc.) (IOQ NZ) is an organisation that represents individuals in the extractive industry. Our role is to promote the positive impact of the industry, the career opportunities available and support professionals working within it.
The IOQ was founded over 100 years ago by four people with a vision for the mineral products industry. They wanted the industry to come together to raise standards, share knowledge and be recognised as highly skilled professionals which are the principles that guide the IOQ NZ today.
To advance the fellowship, development, and professionalism of our members and to enhance the image of the extractive industry.
