RE: Quarry Fines?



Having dealt w/ a similar beneficial reuse/marketing problem with foundry
sand, my gut feel is that you'll have a hard time finding a better use than
the farm fields.  Construction fill, flowable fill, and concrete are all
remote possibilities but your material needs to meet their grain size
specifications consistently (you're probably too fine) and, most
importantly, you need to think locally.  Transportation costs will probably
prohibit anything beyond about 25 miles. Could you use it for fill at the
Quarry?
