We encourage you to use the online survey to supply your data. The survey can be accessed on PC, tablet or smartphone.

We would like to thank the organisations that have completed the survey so far. To get as full a picture of the New Zealand aggregates sector as possible, we have decided to extend the close off date to 31 August 2021.
Once the survey is completed, NZP&M will publish the statistics alongside production statistics for coal and metallic minerals.
All information collected will be treated as strictly confidential, unless disclosure is required by law. Only regional totals will be released publicly and this will be restricted if the information is identifiable to a single operation.
If you have any queries regarding this survey please email NZPAM-QuarriesSurvey@mbie.govt.nz.
Annual minerals industry statistics
The Government revenue report includes total annual petroleum, minerals and coal royalties as well as energy resource levies (ERLs) collected by the government. Expenditure statistics summarise the investment made by region across the prospecting, exploration and production stages.
The production statistics feature coal, industrial minerals and metallic minerals groups. The report includes a national summary followed by metallic minerals data. Coal is broken down by mining method, rank and region and industrial minerals are sorted by region and commodity.
Metallic minerals produced are gold, silver and titanomagnetite ironsand. Rock, sand, and aggregate are produced for roading and construction and are vital for the development of New Zealand’s infrastructure.
A number of other industrial rocks and minerals are produced for local and export markets. They include bentonite, various clays, diatomite, perlite, pumice, serpentine, silica and zeolite.
