Inspiring for Generations: Celebrating a Century of the Institute of Quarrying

This limited edition 100 page book is a record of the Institute of Quarrying’s centenary and celebrates the mineral extractives industry’s progress over the last century.

Introduced by the IQ’s centenary patron, the Duke of Devonshire, the book features a glorious selection of photographs of IQ’s Quarry Garden at the first RHS Chatsworth Flower Show, with descriptions of the garden by designer Paul Hervey-Brookes. The Quarry Garden narrative is threaded between the story of the Institute of Quarrying - from its earliest days in 1917 to present day.

The book also includes a number of ‘Quarry Face’ case studies that focus on individuals from a variety of backgrounds who have chosen a career in the minerals extractives sector. Each case study explores their personal journey into quarrying, as well as the importance of continuous professional development for career progression.
