Aggregate

Crushed rock aggregates produced at the Ronez quarries are supplied direct to the local construction industry, as well as forming the basis for an extensive range of products.

Ronez quarries are grano-diorite deposits, a phaneritic texture intrusive igneous rock similar to granite but containing more plagioclase feldspar than orthoclase feldspar, is from the Pre-Cambrian / Cambrian era and has been worked for construction materials since the eighteenth century. The deposit varies in its composition with sections being granite, areas of both pink and grey, and other sections being dark blue diorite.

Crushed rock aggregates produced at the Ronez quarries are supplied direct to the local market, as well as forming the basis for an extensive range of construction products including ready mixed concrete, asphalt, concrete products, road construction and surfacing, sea defences and drainage.
