Turner Mining Group wins new aggregates contracts with Knife River and Lhoist North America

Turner Mining Group has partnered with construction materials company Knife River to provide greenfield development, plant location grading and settling pond construction.

Ben Schwanberg, business development manager at Turner, says: “We have people and machines readily available which will help Knife River avoid staffing challenges and ramp up quickly to meet deadlines for a large scope of work.

Turner Mining Group is able to provide Knife River a more efficient contracting solution relative to other options.”

Turner says it is ready to overcome any challenges associated with greenfield development on a fairly tight timeline.

The project will require GPS accuracy to meet drawing designs and expertise around initial pit development, the company adds.

In a separate move, Turner has also won a contract to provide overburden removal at sites in Florida and Texas owned by Lhoist North America.

Turner will work through an initial six month contract with the aim of reducing mining costs. It then plans to move onto a three-year agreement.

According to Turner, the projects require larger equipment to replace blasting cost and effectively extract the material.

“Lhoist has contracted Turner Mining Group due to our high level of professionalism and our ability to service them nationwide as well as providing creative solutions to complex problems they encounter regularly,” Schwanberg adds.

Lhoist North America is a major supplier of lime, limestone and clay products to the North American marketplace, with locations throughout the US and in Canada.

The Turner Mining Group describes itself as: “A coast-to-coast, border-to-border contract mining operation.

“Rather than simply operating one mine at a time, Turner Mining Group is able to handle all of a client’s mines on a regional or national basis.

“This enables suppliers and mine owners to optimize their production across the region, by adjusting production at individual mines up or down as needs fluctuate.”
