Clay and Shale
Chapman Industrial Minerals and Services mines and processes various high quality shales and clays which are utilized in a number of residential and commercial products.
Consistent products, efficient mining, and on-time delivery provide our customers with the quality assurance they expect. Primary uses for our clays and shales are the manufacture of face brick, floor and wall tile, and industrial clay pipe and chimney liners.
Due to reduced hydraulic conductivity, Chapman clays and shales are ideal sanitary landfill liners and caps. Commercial and municipal non-permeable liners for water retention and channels for water migration are also uses for this non-permeable material. Further, as a foundation for roadbeds or other dense fill applications our clays and shales provide our customers additional options for their varied needs. An in-depth engineering report discussing the tests and the results of the permeability analysis performed on our clays and shales is available on request.
With over 60 years of mining experience and our vast reserve of high quality raw products, Chapman is capable of providing material to our customers for decades to come. In addition, our contract mining division delivers consistent products and efficient performance to our clients who own their own minerals properties or mineral inventories.
Finally, our fleet of tri-axle dump trucks and trucks with various types of trailers, along with a number of our contract trucking companies, provide the stability required to deliver our products quickly and cost efficiently.
