About the material

The pit has been developed upon what appears to be a glacial esker and contains in excess of 250,000 cubic yards of excellent quality gravel within the currently mined or stripped area.  The gravel consists of coarse to cobble sized, sub-rounded to sub-angular clasts of metasedimentary rock and quartz.
