500 ACRE PROPOSED FUTURE AGGREGATE QUARRY
This is one of the Ottawa largest proposed future aggregate sites at 500 acres, located 30 km West of the City
Initial geology reports and mapping reflect an abundant supply of aggregate resources. The stones range from: Oxford, Bobcaygeon, Gull River. Initial conservative estimates are 44 - 88 Million tons.
Environmental Assessment 1 and Environmental Assessment II studies are based on specifications given by the City of Ottawa and the Ministry of Natural resources. Findings of these studies were presented to the Ministry of Natural Resources and the City of Ottawa and were very well received. Heritage report summary and a three drill hole study to ascertain the quality and quantity of the aggregate material has also been completed.
It is believed that once this 500 acre site is licensed it will represent an aggregate RETAIL VALUE from $500 Million to $1 Billion approximately.
The sellers have the support of the City of Ottawa, the MNR and the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Forestry that this site will be included in the database for proposed licensing based on their findings. At this point in time, some of the remaining steps required is a zoning change, and an approval of a Quarry concept plan to obtain a licence to Quarry Aggregate
The current owners have spent 5 years producing studies in their bid for a City of Ottawa Gravel Pit Permit.
This is a 500 acre site located near Pakenham Ontario in the boundary of Ottawa approximately 30 km from Ottawa
This site is ideal for a future gravel pit as it is elevated more than 100 feet above the surrounding water table,
:is mostly situated on a flat terrain with exposed limestone surfaces in a bushland environment.
:is currently zoned RU Rural Countryside Zone
:is located remotely, it has only a handful of neighbours
:and is next door to a major approved truck route (Dwyer Hill Road)
Please note that approx 36 acres of this site has an easement setback corridor granted to Trans Canada pipeline
Here are some of studies produced for the City of Ottawa Aggregate Gravel Pit application.
1 The Department of Energy Mines and Resources Canada Report states that:
Between 44 to 88 million tonnes of Gravel are located on this site
The value of this gravel is approx. one half to one billion dollars.
2. The Report from the 3 wells drilled states that:
All the wells are dry, to at least 140 feet deep.
This means that the future quarry should not have water pumping issues
3. Environmental Studies performed by a Canada Renowned Firm show that:
No historical indigenous burial sites are located on this site
No endangered species of plants or animals are located on this site.
However the bird species called the Whippoorwill was found nesting along the Trans Canada Pipeline corridor . If necessary a program has been identified to safely move this bird habitat.
All Reports and Studies will be made available to interested buyers
