sargent-quarry-project-infographic-6Over 5,800 acres of Sargent Ranch will not be affected by mining and will be used for mitigation and conservation and ongoing grazing and oil production

sargent-quarry-project-infographic-7Sargent Quarry will create jobs, directly employing up 20 full time skilled workers, and create additional economic benefits to Santa Clara County through direct and indirect expenditures and tax revenues


Sargent Quarry is in the ideal location for a sand and gravel quarry having no adjacent residences or other sensitive land use, direct access to truck traffic going directly on to Highway 101, minimal environmental and visual impacts and on site mitigation and conservation opportunities.
