Manitoba's Tyndall Stone

Tyndall Stone acquired its name from Tyndall, the closet railway point to Garson. A total of five pits were developed in the area by various firms over the years, but only two remain in operation. Gillis Quarries Limited started working the stone in 1910, acquired the property soon after and continues to this day to supply Tyndall Stone.

Quarrying Process And Quarry Products

A stone quarry typically produces the following products: Large size blocks blasted from the quarry face, from approximately 0.5 m 3 (approximately 0.36 tonne weight) to 1.25 m 3 (approximately 5-6 tonne weight), are called rip rap or rock armour and are used in coastal and river flood defence schemes to shore up sea fronts and river banks.

The Quarry Story

Larger quarries may blast once a day and smaller quarries may blast once or twice a week. Blasting is monitored with a special machine to record sound and vibrations so that the community around our quarry remains protected and safe. The blasts that occur when the explosives are set off free the stone from the quarry wall.

How Natural Stone Tile Is Made

How Natural Stone is Made Natural stone isn't made by man, it's formed over time by water, minerals and lava. Some stones like travertine, are created by the slow accumulation and layering of materials.Other stones, like marble, are formed when rock is transformed by extreme pressure and temperature.Finally, stones like granite are created when rock is melted by magma and reformed into stone

Elements of Masonry

Stone being of a brittle nature, the longer pieces in a wall must be properly supported and well bedded in order to prevent them from breaking. It is also best to avoid extremely long stones, although the length of a stone should be greater than its height, especially in ashlar work, on account of the vertical bond.

Debunking urban myths about quarries and property values

13/06/2018The 2006 paper reports up to a 30-percent decrease in property value based on proximity to a quarry, but its findings don't hold up under scrutiny. Phoenix Center report authors George S. Ford, Ph.D., and R. Alan Seals, Ph.D., poke numerous holes into the Hite Report's research, but the most significant may be selection bias.
