Default Gypsum Rock Quarries in Texas... Where are they?

Looking at this as an option to clear a muddy pond at the ranch. Seems everything else is more of a temporary fix. Closer to Goldthwaite / marble falls the better. Thks

Georgia pacific owns it. It the closet one to you. I really don’t think they will sell to the public though. I will have a crew there tomorrow and will ask them. Do you rock or crushed? Crushed is a very fine powder that will probably float.

2-3 yards ? The first run out of the crusher is around 5x6” I think. I will ask tomorrow and get you a number and price.

Yes sir, the quarry is on the Fisher/Stonewall County line, and the mill is right outside of Rotan.
