Vulcan completes California quarry acquisition

By |  December 29, 2014

Vulcan Materials Co. acquired West Coast Aggregates’ Pilarcitos Quarry near Half Moon Bay, Calif., the Half Moon Bay Review reports. The sale is reportedly part of a deal for four quarries between Vulcan and West Coast Aggregates. The amount paid for the quarry was not disclosed.

According to the Half Moon Bay Review, the Pilarcitos Quarry annually produces about 500,000 tons of granite material. The quarry became a more lucrative property in recent months, the newspaper reports, after San Mateo County officials signed off on a 70-year expansion plan that would grow the mining operation to cover 147 acres. As part of the expansion, West Coast Aggregates pledged to conserve 192 acres north of the mining site as natural habitat, the Half Moon Bay Review reports.
