The sand mining process, which will be managed by the division of Webber, LLC, Southern Crushed Concrete, will produce TxDOT grade concrete sand and find sand for over 10 years.
Southern Crushed Concrete
(SCC) has opened a new sand mine
in Liberty County, situated east of the Trinity River. The operation process will include dredging
of concrete sand materials onsite, with the objective of selling 500,000 tons per year.
Having been prepared by the crews, the customised dredge
arrived to the site in April and was ready to start gathering sand by May.
The Liberty County Mine is the company’s 3rd sand mining operation
in the Houston district in the last 14 years and facilitates its recycled concrete and asphalt projects located in Houston and Corpus Christi.
"This is a big investment in the sand mining business and will allow SCC to be in the sand manufacturing business in the foreseeable future," said Jim Miller, Managing Director of SCC. "Borings on the property showed sand depths of 45-70 feet across the 130-acre lot with the possibility of mining an additional 500 acres in the future."
