Granite and Marble

Evolution in building technology over the past 60 years has dramatically changed the way in which granite and marble are used in building construction. In older city buildings, the masonry walls were necessarily thick and strong enough to support the upper floors. Stone for this purpose was generally sourced from within the State. A good example of this style of building is Parliament House on North Terrace, built of Kapunda marble on a plinth of granite quarried from West Island near Victor Harbor. Modern multi-storey buildings use thin external panels of granite, typically 30–50 mm thick, as cladding over steel load-bearing frames. Advances in granite processing technology, particularly developments in diamond sawing and computer control systems over the last decade or so, have reduced the relative cost of granite for use in domestic applications such as tiles and benchtops. As a consequence granite has become an international commodity of some importance, with ~16 Mt/year being mined around the world. Much of South Australia’s production is exported as raw blocks weighing up to 30 t.

South Australia is Australia’s largest producer of granite, from quarries on northern Eyre Peninsula and a zone extending from the eastern Mount Lofty Ranges to the South-East. In 1999, production was 22 800 t, and for the first time granite production from Eyre Peninsula exceeded 10000 t.
