The first step is to take down the "primary block", which is a large dimensioned chunk of rock loosened from the quarry wall. This is most often achieved by drilling, blasting or/or sawing. A primary block can vary in size depending on the stone type, and up to 1000 cubic metres, 2700 tons!Namibian Dimension Stone - Mines and Energy Nam,economic viability of such a processing plant that is not linked directly to a quarrying operation would be enhanced by acquiring Economic Processing Zone status, due to the tax incentive advantages.
