Martin Marietta Augusta


In October 2014 Contour Mining & Construction began the initial phase of a pit expansion at the Martin Marietta Augusta Quarry. This project required the mobilization of larger equipment due to the scale of the project. Given the close proximity to the historic Augusta Canal (Circa 1847), special dust control measures and safety measures due to blasting, were implemented. The scope of this project includes:

  • 650,000 cy of overburden removal
  • 5 acres of clearing and grubbing
  • Drilling and blasting
  • Contract haulage
