What Kind of Rock Do You Provide?
Many quarries provide a variety of rock, from marble and limestone to gypsum and sandstone. They may also produce granite, slate, travertine and flagstone. They can crush the rock into tiny pieces to provide gravel or they can provide sand and aggregate for area paving contractors, contractors, gardeners, landscapers and homeowners.
Who Works at a Quarry?
Many professionals work at a quarry, from the miners and excavators to the engineers on staff who must ensure the stability of the quarry area. There are also explosives and demolition experts on hand with special skills exploding rock through the use of dynamite. In addition to blasting engineers, there are also drilling contractors whose job it is to drill through rock. Everyone needs to be licensed and certified, plus adhere to all safety guidelines.
Do You Offer Packaging and Delivery?
Many quarries offer packaging and delivery of the building materials they mine. They package the rock that is excavated, then ship the crushed rock to customers, such as contractors, builders and landscapers. They even sell in bulk to retailers. The materials go on to be used in many applications, such as decorative edging for gardens, as aggregate for a roadway or for driveways.
