Kalum Quarry Ltd. Partnership is owned by the Kitsumkalum First Nation. The business stems from a deal reached years ago between CN Rail and Kitsumkalum to purchase rocks from the band to be used as bedrock for the company’s railways as it was a much higher quality grade of rock than they had been previously using. Beyond the rail ballast, research on the rock determined it could also be used for making cement aggregate and road base material to sell locally.
The various sized rock produced at the quarry is high quality, superior strength aggregate appropriate for any industrial or residential project.
With a solid history of large quality rock yields, the Kalum quarry has been estimated as having at additional capacity of 22,000,000 m3, enough volume to supply a continuous demand for quality rock product, over the long term.
