Quarrying is the dominant form of mining activity in Barbados, involving mainly clays and shale, sand, gravel and limestone. Success in the sector is crucial in fulfilling the needs of the construction sector through minimising the cost of importing materials like cement. The Natural Resources Department (NRD) is the principal public body responsible for developing and implementing public policy in matters regarding the mining sector. There is also a degree of monitoring of mines and mining activity by the Town and Country Development Planning Office, the Barbados Water Authority (BWA) and the Ministry of Labour and Immigration.
