In Latest News

An annual mine reclamation photo contest by Aggregates Manager’s has produced many amazing images, despite “fewer operators had projects that would allow them to enter”.

A standout image from the US trade publication’s contest, was an entry by Chaney Enterprises.

The company reclaimed its Mardi Mine facility in Davidsonville, Maryland, as an 18-hole public golf course.

The project was selected as the recipient of the 204 Maryland Department of the Environment Reclamation Award, as well as the 2004 Interstate Mining Compact Commission national reclamation award for the non-coal category.

This year’s winner was Lemon Grove from sand miner RCP Block & Brick, a California-based family company, but the contest also featured this spectacular entry by Chaney Enterprises.
