Permitting Update: South Carolina

Southwestern Edgefield County, not far from North Augusta, S.C., could gain a 600,000-ton-a-year crushed stone operation if state permitting comes through and the conditional use permit granted for what’s proposed as a 70-year investment by Luck Stone.

The Virginia-based subsidiary of Luck Companies already has operations in Chester, Kershaw, Fairfield and Spartanburg counties.

About two years’ surveying of the area in and around Edgefield County eventually identified 435 acres north of Woodlawn Road, near the McCormick County line, as viable for a quarry, Katie Kosloski, Greenfield development manager for Luck Stone, told Edgefield County Council this month.

Once it reaches a point of full operation, the quarry is expected to produce 600,000 tons of crushed stone a year, with operations viable for 70 years.
