Pozzolan deposit positions Boral to step up Western state ash volume

Boral Resources has acquired 4.5 million tons of natural pozzolan contained in surface piles at a central Utah mine. "Extensive testing and characterization of the materials shows that they can be blended with several Western fly ash sources to extend the volume of concrete-quality pozzolans available in Western states markets," says Boral CM Services Vice President, Technology Rafic Minkara, Ph.D., P.E. "This material can deliver enhanced ASR mitigation when blended with some fly ashes. Furthermore, the material's location at an active and fully permitted site greatly reduces development costs and timelines."
