BURNCO's sustainable mining practices produce a broad range of aggregate products across North America. BURNCO believes in responsible land use and site reclamation.


Sand and gravel comprise the most basic yet essential construction materials. Extracted gravel is crushed, screened and/or washed to meet user specified requirements. A wide range of applications are possible, with aggregates used for compacted subgrade, drainage rock, decorative features, or as a constituent within asphalt and ready mix.

Recognizing that sand and gravel deposits occur in limited locations, BURNCO ensures timely extractions prior to intensive surface reclamation. This enables the future development of aggregate reserves as well as ensures future generations will meet the construction requirements of tomorrow.

Composition of Aggregate


Gravel is a loose collection of rock fragments that occur naturally throughout the world due to sedimentary and erosive geological processes.

Crushed Stone

Crushed stone or angular rock is produced by mining a rock deposit, and then breaking the rock down to the desired size by utilizing crushers.

Sand is a granular material consisting of finely divided mineral particles. The grain size of sand is smaller than gravel and coarser than silt.

What is Aggregate?

Aggregates are a combination of sand, gravel, crushed stone, and shale. Sand and gravel make up the most basic yet essential construction materials used extensively for building roads, bridges, offices, residences, and numerous other commercial, industrial, and public works construction projects.

Where is Aggregate used?

Aggregate materials, including sand and gravel, have a variety of uses in construction and other applications. They are commonly used in playgrounds, golf courses, baseball diamonds, bike trails, and roadways to improve safety. Aggregate is also a crucial component in the construction of buildings, including homes, schools, and community centers. In fact, an average person consumes 10-14 tons of aggregate per year, equivalent to one full tandem truckload. These materials play a vital role in our daily lives and are used in many places we frequent.

Why should society value Aggregate?

It's important to remember that aggregate is a non-renewable resource. Once land is developed, the aggregate beneath it is no longer accessible. If an aggregate resource is not produced, the materials must be transported from a different site, often located far away. The greater the distance to the source of aggregate, the more expensive it becomes to use in construction projects such as paving driveways, building houses or schools, or filling sandboxes. This increased cost also contributes to higher vehicle emissions from increased fuel use and additional wear and tear on local roads and highways due to increased truck traffic. In the end, this affects the consumer by raising the cost of these types of projects.

How will we protect our land after our mining activities?

The aggregate mining industry is heavily regulated, and companies must follow strict environmental laws and regulations, such as
a) Equivalent Land Capability – which requires land be reclaimed back to a capability equal or better than before mining;
b) Conservation & Reclamation Planning - requiring the submission of specific conservation and reclamation plans to government agencies regarding development details, conservation strategies, and reclamation plans for all aggregate mining proposals, and;
c) Operating Conditions - where we follow the operating conditions (hauling routes, hours of operations, etc.) set by local municipalities or counties. By adhering to these regulations, companies like ours can provide local, cost-effective aggregate while also creating new amenities such as parks, golf courses, and community centers through land reclamation. This benefits the community in multiple ways.
