Vulcan developing granite mine in California

By |  September 23, 2013

Vulcan Materials Co. began mine development at its Azusa Rock Quarry east of Los Angeles. According to Vulcan, this mine contains more than 100 million tons of granite, which will allow Vulcan to supply California for infrastructure projects and commercial development in the next decades.

In addition, Vulcan says this project will generate millions of yards of overburden material that will be used to complete reclamation of a 90-acre former sand-and-gravel mine in nearby Irwindale, Calif. The site will be commercially developed, and the reclamation is expected to be complete by 2018.
