Tap into specialized expertise for aggregate industry projects

The consulting geology team at Bowser-Morner brings more than 270 years of experience to support the needs and special projects of the aggregate industry.

The skilled, professional geologists who make up our dedicated consulting geology group work closely with aggregate and mineral producers to evaluate, develop, and trouble-shoot operational issues in quarries and mines. The group has been instrumental in evaluating existing and potential new reserves for quarry owners and operators. We also perform preliminary investigations related to known regional geologic conditions and work with producers to better develop drilling programs and mine plans for exploration of mineral resources.

Consult our experts on your aggregate mining and production needs.

Unique and specialized consulting services include:

  • Exploration evaluations
  • Aggregate/mineral reserves evaluation and analysis
  • Aggregate quality evaluations
  • Quarry investigations
  • Quality problem-solving in quarry operations
  • Technician training classes
  • Forensic investigations
  • Aggregate product development
  • Gradation testing
  • Appraisal assistance

Benefit from more than two centuries of industry experience.

Beyond more than two centuries of combined experience, the geologists in our consulting group stay current on the latest industry issues and needs by actively participating in industry associations and holding seats on technical committees.

Subsurface exploration services for the industrial mineral and aggregate industries.

Either directly for aggregate producers or turn-keyed in conjunction with our Consulting Geology Group, Bowser-Morner offers the aggregate and industrial minerals industries sonic rig capabilities (sand and gravel) and 3 wireline coring rigs (limestone and other minerals), manned by experienced crews.

Sonic rigs can collect up to 4" core samples at a high rate of speed to almost any mining depth desired. These core samples provide for greater accuracy of the gradations of the formation, thus allowing for improved analysis of the deposit.

Our wireline coring rigs can advance NQ or HQ rock coring to depths in excess of 1,000 feet. And, when coupled with our Consulting Geologists and Laboratory Testing Services, reserve estimation can be determined.
