All Purpose Sand All Purpose Sand
Amphibolite A heavy, dark colored, medium to coarse grained rock, formed from other rocks as they come into contact with a molten rock mass.
Basalt A very fine grained extrusive igneous rock with less that 20% quartz. Extrusive formed from the rapid cooling of basaltic lava exposed at, or very near, the surface. Basalt
Caliche A hardened natural cement of calcium carbonate binding other materials such as gravel, sand, clay and silt. Occurs generally in arid or semi-arid regions of the western USA. Crushed Caliche
Cement A powder of alumina, silica, lime, iron oxide, and magnesium oxide burned together in a kiln and finely pulverized and used as an ingredient of mortar and concrete. Click here for information about our Cement products.
Cement Treated Base Cement-Treated Base
Cold-Mix/Pre-Coat Cold Mix / PreCoat is a mixture of mineral aggregate and modified liquid asphalt binder mixed together in specific proportions, placed, and compacted at ambient temperatures. Click here for information about our Asphalt products. Cold-Mix Pre-Coat
Crude Oil Petroleum as it occurs naturally, as it comes from an oil well, or after extraneous substances (as entrained water, gas, and minerals) have been removed. Crude Oil
Dolomite Also known as "dolostone", is a sedimentary rock composed primarily of the mineral dolomite, CaMg(CO2)3. It is found in sedimentary basins worldwide. It is thought to form by the alteration of lime mud and limestone by magnesium-rich groundwater. Limestone
Feldspathic Sand Feldspathic Sand
Gabbro A heavy, coarse grained rock, composed of mostly dark colored minerals with little quartz, formed as magma cools below the surface of the earth. Basalt
Gneiss A common medium to coarse grained and widely distributed type of rock formed by metamorphic processes from pre-existing formations that were originally either igneous or sedimentary rocks. It is often identified by alternating darker and lighter colored bands, called "gneissic banding" which describes texture, not composition. Granite
Granite An igneous, light colored, coarse grained rock, composed mostly of quartz and feldspar, formed from a body of magma as it cools. Granite
Granite - Porcupine Mountain Granite-Porcupine Mountain Granite-Porcupine Mountain (FR)
Gravel An unconsolidated mixture of rock fragments that is coarser than sand. Sand and Gravel
Gypsum A widely distributed mineral consisting of hydrous calcium sulfate that is used especially as a soil amendment and in making plaster of paris. Gypsum
Hot Mixed Asphalt Hot Mixed Asphalt is a mixture of mineral aggregate and liquid asphalt binder mixed together in specific proportions at elevated temperatures then placed and compacted prior to cooling. Click here for information about our Asphalt products. Hot Mixed Asphalt
Limestone A fine to coarse grained sedimentary rock, formed from transportation and compaction of calcium carbonate sediment from the shells of sea organisms or by the direct chemical precipitation of calcium carbonate. Limestone
Limestone Rock Asphalt (LRA) A porous limestone, once saturated with petroleum, that has since evaporated, leaving behind dark asphalt tar within the voids of the rock. LRA
Limestone Rock- Crude Oil Mix (LRC) LRC
Marble Formed from limestone that has been subjected to heat and pressure from metamorphic processes. Limestone
Natural Sand Natural Sand
Pegmatite Light colored, very coarse grained rock, formed from magma that has cooled over a long period of time giving the individual crystals in the rock time to grow quite large. Granite
Pressur-Seal Pressur-Seal
Quartzite Light to dark colored rock, formed from sandstone, subjected to heat and pressure from metamorphic processes. Quartzite
Ready-Mix Click here for information about our Ready Mix products. Ready-Mix
Sand and Gravel A naturally occurring granular material ranging in size from 0.002 to 4 inches being formed as a result of the erosion and weathering of rocks. Composition is dependent on the source material. Sand and Gravel
Sandstone A sedimentary rock consisting of usually quartz sand united by some cement (as silica or calcium carbonate). Sandstone
Shale Shale Rock
Slate A dark to light colored rock, formed from shale, subjected to heat and pressure from metamorphic processes. Shale Rock
Spodumene Fines Spodumene Fines
Syenite A coarse-grained intrusive igneous rock that has basically the same general composition as granite but with the quartz either absent or present in relatively small amounts. Granite
TrapRock Light to dark colored, fine grained rock, formed as molten rock flows out of the earth as lava and is cooled quickly. "Trap rock" is not a geological term. It is a term used in the mining industries to refer to any number of dark-colored igneous rocks that are crushed and used, primarily, for road construction. The most common rock types of trap rock are gabbro and basalt. Basalt
Volcanic Tuff A rock composed of compacted volcanic ash in sizes from fine to coarse. Volcanic Tuff
