Cox Station Quarry
Cox Station Quarry is located 7 miles upstream of the Abbotsford Mission Bridge on the North Side of Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford. Cox Station is a rock quarry located on several hundred acres of land owned by the Carlson family and includes a barge ramp facility, a conveyor loading facility and two CN Rail Spur lines providing the ability for rail car loading.
The aggregate at Cox Station Quarry is a 100 percent fractured material produced by drilling and blasting solid rock. After crushing, the finished products are transported by a 3500' conveyor to the barge loading facility on the Fraser River.
The addition of a wash plant in 2003 provided MSG with the ability to produce washed products for use in high spec applications such as concrete aggregate, asphalt aggregate, paving stones and bases for synthetic turf field construction.
The majority of aggregate produced at Cox Station is shipped out by barge to a market place that stretches from Langley to North Vancouver.
