The economics of grindstone production at Narcoonowie quarry, Strezlecki Desert

Smith, Michael; McBryde, Isabel; Ross, J


The quantitative data on the scale of grindstone production at Narcoonowie quarry in the Strzelecki Desert in north-eastern South Australia is discussed. The history of Narcoonowie reflects a late expansion of quarrying and grindstone production, drawing in a marginal site in the dune field to meet increasing demand for millstones from the local subsistence economy.
