Scott Property

Heidelberg Materials Canada Limited is proposing an aggregate extraction operation at its Scott Property.

Overview of the Project

Located west of Calgary’s Spy Hill area (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 30 years depending on the final development plan.

Aggregates are 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.
