What type of quarry is planned?

The planned quarry will be an open-pit mine.

Quarries are generally used for extracting building materials, such as dimension stone, construction aggregate, riprap, sand, and gravel. They are often co-located with concrete and asphalt plants due to the requirement for large amounts of aggregate in those materials. The Roblar Road quarry will be allowed to do up to 10% asphalt recycling. The County did no analysis of the impacts of asphalt recycling on the local area's natural resources or the health and safety of people who live, work and travel through the area.
