Aggregate ApplicationsIt’s no secret that establishing a new pit or quarry in Ontario can be both challenging and complex. Whether on private or public land, the maze of approvals and permits needed for a pit, quarry, or wayside can be daunting.

Ozaanaman Engineering Limited has been helping aggregate operators navigate this process for more than 13 years. We are proud to have assisted in or managed the permitting and application process for over 150 pits and quarries!

Our diverse team of professionals can help prepare and process concurrent Planning Act applications, conduct engineering surveys, prepare sight plans, even organize and lead public consultant forums. We even undertake quality analysis for existing operations.

Whether you are prospecting for a new aggregate source, or looking to get your current sources up to code as specified in the Aggregate Resource Act, we can help!
