The site contains over 960 million tons of Limestone reserves and 920 million tons of Sandstone from the Lee Formation of Pennsylvania age. The Sandstone drilled from the 500 foot high outcropping known as Hells Point Ridge, was put through five mechanical tests, including LA Abrasion and Silica Dioxide, and qualified for TDOT Type I-IV aggregate with an average of 72% better than specification, making it ideal for non-skid surface course asphalt paving mixes. There are no natural gas wells existing on the site, however there is substantial opportunity for a buyer to tap into a natural gas pipeline along the northern border if desired. There are also numerous producing oil/gas wells on neighboring properties, a positive sign that there is oil/gas in the immediate area. All topographical maps and test results will be provided upon request.
