ACG Materials roots go back to 1955 when the Harrison Gypsum Company originally began as a small family operation supplying gypsum to the family farm and neighbors. Originally named the Cement Gypsum Company, Harrison Mine No. 1 was opened near Cement, OK, and underwent the name change to Harrison Gypsum Company in 1956. Over the years the company developed the mining business by supplying raw gypsum rock to nearby manufacturers of Portland cement.
As the market area for Harrison Gypsum expanded, gypsum reserves and production capacity also expanded. With business growing, capital investments were made to upgrade to modern mining equipment and improve infrastructure. In 1994, Harrison Gypsum’s mine #2 was named the largest single gypsum mine in the United States by the U.S. Department of the Interior Publication. Today, the total gypsum reserves of Harrison Gypsum Company is estimated to be in excess of a quarter of a billion tons.
What we do :
Gypsum, limestone and gravel are typically mined in an open pit quarry. The process used to mine them is very similar to that used in many other rock quarries.
First, the exposed rock is fractured by drilling and blasting. The fractured rock is then loaded into trucks and transported to a processing plant.
At the processing plant, the large pieces of ore are reduced in size by passing it through a large crusher. Crushing the ore generates a mixture of smaller rocks that can be cleaned and sorted by size.
Sorting is accomplished by passing the rock through a series of vibrating screens. Sorted rock is then loaded for distribution to be further processed by the end user.
A reclaimed mine can be beautiful, with many ponds and open fields. ACG Materials takes pride in its reclamation efforts, and is committed to returning mine sites to a state of usefulness.
In addition to mine reclamation; ACG Materials is committed to possessing all of the required licenses, air, storm water and other environmental permits, registrations, and reports in order to operate in a way that helps reduce the impact on our natural environment. Industry best practices and innovative solutions are also used in all of our locations.
