An enforceable undertaking was accepted on 8 February 2010 from Holcim Australia-formerly Cemex Australia-following an incident in late 2008 where work at the company's quarry damaged part of the National Heritage place.

A minimum of $280,000 will be spent to improve the company's management practices and understanding of National Heritage values. The company must also enter into cultural heritage agreements with three Aboriginal groups in the area, which will lead to significant financial and other benefits to those communities over the life of the quarry.
