Rock quarries and sand and gravel pits supply vital building materials to construction sites all around the world – however the cost of aggregate delivery can substantially add to the budget of a project. This makes the need for quarry operations close to your project site vital to keeping your project on track and on budget.
The delivered price of a metric ton of sand and gravel doubles at about 23 miles and doubles for crushed rock at about 45 miles. Given the cost of transporting aggregates over long distance, it is no surprise that as much as 90 percent of aggregates are used in projects within 50 miles of their extraction, or quarry, site.

Quarrying is the process of removing rock, sand, gravel or other minerals from the ground in order to use them to produce materials for construction or other uses. So, a quarry is working on the surface of the earth where minerals are extracted. Quarries are also known by other names around the world: ‘surface mine’, ‘pit’, ‘open pit’ or ‘opencast mine’.
