US Aggregates set to reopen Indiana quarry

US Aggregates is reopening an Indiana quarry that hasn’t been mined in nearly a decade.

According to the Lebanon Reporter, a representative with the company told the Boone County Commissioners that U.S. Aggregates plans to resume operations at the gravel pit near Thorton, Ohio.

The company previously mined there 10 years ago, but could only go 40-feet deep due to the drag line being used. However the new clam shell dredge would be able to reach five times that at 200 feet.

“We’re going to be going pretty deep into that lake,” US Aggregates’ Rachel Lockhart said.
