Many of our mines were first opened for mineral extraction in the 1930's. During WW II this area played a major role in steel production due to the large deposits of mica and feldspar. In the late 1940's mining efforts turned to decorative hard aggregate.
The Rocky Mountains and Colorado's Front Range contain one of North America's greatest concentrations and varieties of hard aggregate. The area is well known for its fine quality deposits of quartz, feldspar and granite. The deposits contain colors such as white, red, pink, tan, green, gray and black.
At Colorado Quarries, we take pride in our reputation for providing a wide variety of hard aggregate, expert sizing and timely, courteous service. Crushing is done to precast industry standards.
Our main facility is located in Canon City approximately 200 miles southwest of Denver and 15 minutes east of the Royal Gorge Bridge (America's highest suspension bridge).
All of our mines are located within an 80 mile radius of our main facility.
