Table Mountain Exceeds Air Quality Standards

May 27, 2016 | By | No Comments

We installed a Baghouse, Dust Storage Silo, Knockout Box, Burner, and Mineral Return System with a surge and weigh hopper. All of the equipment except the Burner are Stansteel Products. The burner is a Hauck Megastar Burner. The personnel/Contractors that assisted in the installation include GRI Plant Operators, GRI Concrete Crew, Layman Electric, Stansteel, American Crane.

The baghouse supplies air to the asphalt plant and remove exhaust and dust created by the process of drying aggregates and mixing asphalt. The baghouse allows our asphalt plant to exceed EPA and Tuolumne County Air District standards

The equipment allows GRI to be more environmentally aware and energy aware in our asphalt production process. Where before we were wasting 3-5% of all aggregate products, now we have a full recovery system that allows us to recover and refeed that 3-5% as mineral filler product. The equipment has greatly reduced our air born emissions while increasing the quality of our asphalt mix.

Rip Rap Season is upon us

September 29, 2015 | By | No Comments

Rip rap is used for rock slope protection on highways and embankments. Rip rap is used for levee repairs and maintenance throughout the Central Valley, Delta and Bay Area.

The smaller sizes of rip rap have the perfect use for culvert protection to dissipate storm water runoff.

We produce rip rap at two of our quarry locations. Table Mountain Quarry in Jamestown and Jackson Valley Quarry in Ione.

For information please contact Kathleen Williams at 209-202-8024.

New Loader for Table Mountain

August 24, 2015 | By | No Comments

George Reed Table Mountain Plant recently gained a new loader to the fleet. The loader is a CAT 982M. It is a smaller loader, but still has the ability to single pass load outbound trucks. The upside is the fuel usage savings. The loader is forecast to use approximately 50% less fuel than the loader that it is replacing. Welcome to the team!

This picture is of RSP (rock slope protection) being placed on the slope of the new regulating reservoir being constructed for TID (Turlock Irrigation District).  The reservoir will help regulate/maximize water delivery efficiencies of laterals 7 and 8.

This is the second phase of larger project that was started late last year.  The project is located in Hilmar on the south east side of town and is slated to be completed before the 2015 irrigation season begins.

Grace under pressure for Munn & Perkins

 MSHA Inspection at M&P

Yesterday morning Munn & Perkins Plant was having a rough start to the day due to reasons beyond their control.  On top of that, things got more complicated when an inspector from MSHA showed up.  In the midst of off all the chaos the plant personnel continued moving forward and received a clean inspection.  This is the third NO CITATION inspection in a row for the folks at Munn & Perkins.  Their efforts to maintain a safe work environment are very commendable and they have achieved another brilliant inspection.

Keep up the excellent work!

Jackson Valley Quarry is Flawless!

November 18, 2014 | By | No Comments

Jackson Valley Quarry received an MSHA inspection starting yesterday Thursday 11/13 and ending today, Friday 11/14.

NO CITATIONS were issued during this inspection!!!!  As you all know it is very difficult to go through an MSHA inspection without receiving a citation.

The inspector was extremely impressed with the condition of the plant and equally impressed with the positive attitudes of all the miners he spoke to.

This is a great accomplishment for all the troops at JVQ. Congratulations!!!
