By |  February 4, 2019

1. More than 100 dealers, producers and contractors visited Park City Stone in Cave City, Kentucky, for the EvoQuip open event featuring live working demonstrations of the Terex brand’s compact crushing and screening range.

2. A conveyor belt moves material at Cemex’s Balcones Quarry in New Braunfels, Texas. Balcones Quarry is ranked as the largest crushed stone producer in the United States, according to the United States Geological Survey, producing 10 million to 12 million tpy.

3. P&Q ventured into the pit at Hanson Aggregates’ Penns Park Quarry in Newtown, Pennsylvania, during a 2018 visit, catching a glimpse of the operation’s crushing equipment in action. At the time of the visit, a Sandvik JM1513 jaw crusher, housed in this structure, reduced material to about 8 in. in size.

4. Former college football coach Bill Curry, the National Coach of the Year at Alabama in 1989 and a two-time Super Bowl champion as a player, paid a visit to the Ohio Aggregates & Industrial Minerals Association’s 2018 Annual Meeting & Trade Show in Columbus, Ohio. Curry shared stories from his playing days under Hall of Fame coaches Vince Lombardi and Don Shula, offering sentiments that aggregate producers could apply to their businesses.

5. Pit & Quarry Managing Editor Zach Mentz, left, with Paul Manning of Omya at Cemex’s Balcones Quarry in New Braunfels, Texas. The visit to Balcones Quarry was part of Quarry Academy, co-hosted in late 2018 by Dyno Nobel and Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology. Manning is a geologist for Sylacauga, Alabama-based Omya.
