Quarries are an important part of our everyday life. Did you know that we need aggregates, the material made at rock quarries, to build roads, bridges, homes, schools, hospitals, airports, and churches? The products produced at Rockydale Quarries help to build the roads we drive on, the homes we live in, and the schools that children attend. Companies who operate quarries, such as Rockydale, also provide jobs to local area residents and contribute financially by paying taxes and donating time, material, and funds to improve the community in which we live and work.
This section of our website is dedicated to quarry education and fun activities for students of all ages.
- Rockology provides basic information about rock quarries, aggregates, and the mining process.
We hope you find the information to be both educational and fun!
