(quarry) The Eagle Rock Quarry is ready for mining, once the American construction sector returns to its former glory. Polaris Minerals Vice-President Herb Wilson says the proposed aggregate mine at Hocking Point is still in their sights. Wilson said it would be an expensive project to get started, but the quality and amount of aggregate keep the company interested, while they continue to work their sand and gravel quarry near Port McNeill. He said if the American construction economy were to bounce back tomorrow, it would still take 5 years to restart the permitting process and build the shipping terminal and infrastructure needed.
