Minerals move hard to swallow.
Sand and gravel extraction will be banned if the British government gives it the go-ahead.
Harold McKee of Mourne Mineral said that many families in the area have been supported by quarrying for generations.
He said: "The quarries here have been going longer than the oldest people around here."
He also claimed ending sand and gravel extraction would not boost the environment, and added: "For the Park to break even, it would need 3,000 tourists a day."
