The Quarry or Not? event was held at the BGS in 2008 and then again in 2009. This event aimed to raise the awareness of environmental, science and economic issues related to minerals extraction amongst schools and the general public. Sixth form students from across the East Midlands took part, acting as different stakeholders in a simulated mineral planning process that culminated in a planning inquiry.
