Back in the late '80's, John Hurley Sr hatched a plan. He figured he would revive an old abandoned slate quarry in the tiny Trinity Bay community of Burgoyne's Cove. Some said he was a dreamer...that no one would ever buy rock coming out of Trinity Bay. But Hurley proved them wrong.
Today, you can find slate from the Burgoyne's Cove quarry on the roofs of buildings all over the world.
You'll see how John Hurley Sr's seemingly harebrained idea has become a successful family business of international proportions. In the Story of a Quarry.
