uses of heavy rock aggregates

  • Crushed Stone: Limestone, Granite, Traprock and More Geology.com

    Granite and trap rock are the second and third most commonly used types of rocks for producing crushed stone. They are superior to limestone when used in acid waters or soils and when subjected to abrasion. They can substitute for limestone as a concrete aggregate and when a durable aggregate is needed.

    Hills and mountains exist because they are composed of hard rocks resistant to erosion. That's why quarrymen look to these areas to find suitable rock to quarry. Valleys often form in areas of weaker rocks that are more easily eroded away. It is essential that aggregates used in construction purposes are strong and durable.
