Lehigh Hanson Materials Limited is planning for an aggregate extraction operation at its Scott Property.
Overview of the Project
Located in the community of Bearspaw (Section 5, Township 26, Range 2, W5M) on the north side of Burma Road, the site is located on a significant gravel deposit and could produce aggregate resources for up to 25 years depending on the final development plan.
Aggregate is a scarce, non-renewable resource found in specific locations. Calgary and Rocky View County have local, high-quality supplies of gravel, however they are depleting and large deposits for future supply are limited and rare. Locally produced aggregate means reduced community and infrastructure impacts, reduced travel costs and greenhouse gas emissions, and significant benefit to the economy, local tax base and quality of life to those in Rocky View County, Calgary and throughout the province.
Lehigh acknowledges the time invested by the local community on previous applications for the Scott Property. We continue to pursue an operation at this site because of regional need and the significant, high-quality volume of close to market aggregate reserves. Lehigh is committed to a performance-standard approach to inform the application and the cumulative impacts management. Lehigh will also continue to refer to previous engagement results to inform the application.
