    The North Dufferin Agricultural Community Taskforce (NDACT) is a local citizens' group fighting an aggregate license application by US-based hedge fund company, The Highlands Companies, to mine for Amabel Dolostone (limestone) in the Township of Melancthon, Ontario. The proposed mega quarry would be the second largest in North America and the largest in Canada. Melancthon is located approx.120 kms north west of Toronto. This area is classified as Class 1 agricultural land, boasting a rare and unique soil called Honeywood Silt Loam which grows a multitude of vegetables (especially potatoes) and serves as a source of local food production for the GTA.
