What are we doing?


In our quarry, production is carried out through open mining method. After the graywacke material on the stone is excavated, the holes drilled at a depth of 12-15 meters with a drilling machine (rock) are exploded using emulite dynamite, anfo and delayed capsule. The material obtained is loaded onto trucks with wheeled and tracked loader machines and transported to the crushing and screening facility. In the crushing and screening plants, the material is divided into appropriate sizes and classified as 1no stone chips, 2no stone chips and stone dust and other materials. The material allocated to the silos is transported to the customer via transporter trucks, and the remaining material is stacked separately in the stock areas.

Where is crushed stone used?

Gravel is used in many areas from concrete production to asphalt, filling, drainage works, from temporary and service roads to landscaping, landscaping and social park areas.

Especially on highways, the road supported with gravel is also used as a precaution, as it enables high speed vehicles to reduce their speed. In cases where the crushed stones are used on the roads as not compacted, a forced deceleration is provided as the free movement of the crushed stones makes vehicle control difficult at high speed. However, this practice, which causes the vehicles to lose their control in sudden accelerations and maneuvers, is generally used in temporary solutions and the drivers are warned against this danger with traffic signs and markers, the cruising speed is reduced.
