Hillhead blast

EPC-UK blast brings down 30,000 tonnes of stone for equipment demonstration purposes

THE starting gun has been fired for Hillhead 2022, which will take place at Hillhead Quarry, near Buxton, Derbyshire, from 21–23 June.

Carried out by EPC-UK, two sections of the quarry face in the demonstration area at the north end of the site were recently drilled and blasted to produce around 30,000 tonnes of run-of-quarry stone for equipment demonstration purposes at this year’s show.

After a gap of four years, now is the time to take a fresh look and discover all the latest developments in the industry. Visitors to the event will be able to choose from 600 exhibitors, watch more than 60 live demonstrations, and network face-to-face with up to 20,000 quarrying, construction, and recycling professionals.
