Flatwillow® Sandstone Quarry
The Montana high plains north of the Little Belt Mountains seems like an endless stretch of flat-topped benches separated by deep ravines called coulees.
This is where we quarry the Flatwillow. This is one of the locations where layers of sandstone are collected from near the surface of the bench.
Once the slabs are collected, they are broken down with a hydraulic splitter.
Flatwillow Squares and Rectangles are chopped on all four edges.
Flatwillow Split-face is made by chopping the Flatwillow slabs across the bedding of the stone.
A lot of the Flatwillow that is collected is palletized directly as Flatwillow Moss Rock.
