Aggregate Resources

Aggregate Resources Section is to provide specialized support services for the management of the Provinces’ aggregate resources. The services provided are to maintain a data base of aggregate related information to accommodate highway construction and maintenance needs. The section provides input and recommendations towards the inter-departmental administration of provincial aggregate resources. The objective is to define, explore and protect adequate aggregate sites for future department use and to address competing land use issues by conducting field exploration and testing of aggregate resources. Topographical maps, geological maps and air photographs are then used to identify possible aggregate anomalies for testing. Aggregate information is available to both the public and private sector.
