As you travel through Ontario you've likely passed an operating quarry or gravel pit without even knowing it;
there may even be one in your community. Some people think that pits and quarries are unnecessary.
But stone, sand and gravel are vital to our daily lives.
Here at GravelFacts.ca we uncover the facts. Contrary to what you may have heard, the aggregate industry
