Our Products:

All of our limestone products come from our Bellevue, Michigan quarry and are 100% crushed, screened, and sized into the following products:

Aglime: Our agricultural lime is a high calcium lime produced in a Stedman Cage-Mill. The cage mill yields a fine product which is quick-acting, while still retaining some larger particles for residual neutralization in later months.
A Recent Technical Analysis Follows:
Gradation:
97.8% passing 8 mesh / 45.3% passing 60 mesh / 35.9% passing 100 mesh
Composition:
35.74% Calcium / 00.35% Magnesium
Calcium Carbonate Equivalent:
92.33% neutralizing value
Chips:
Our road chips are a 1/8 X 7/8 product that is ideal for topping: driveways and paths.
It packs well / Stays in place / Easy to shovel
 

Coarse:
Our coarse aggregate is a 7/8 X 2 product that works well in stabilizing wet or muddy roadways.
It makes an excellent base material and is still suitable for driveways. Other uses include sewer and railroad ballast.

Rap:
While not a true rip-rap material, this product is larger than our coarse material with a top size 6 to 8. It has been used to stabilize swampy ground / to line the banks of a river / streams / anywhere a large product is needed.
