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!

Turlock irrigation gets bolstered

February 2, 2015 | By | No Comments

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.

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!!!

Chuck Simpson
Safety Manager

GR’s Accounting Team has a Blast!!!

September 5, 2014 | By | No Comments

The accounting staff for George Reed (Basic Resources) recently took a field trip to the Jackson Valley Quarry in Ione. They were given a tour to help let them get a behind the scenes look at the workings of the quarry. They were given a tour of the plant along with an explanation of the production process. At the end of the tour they were able to see an actual blast. The accounting staff enjoyed the tour and all felt that it was helpful with their own job responsibilities.
