How Our Materials Are Used


Construction and road building materials.


Granite is the mineral that is extracted from this quarry location.
The crushed granite that is produced at the Ringwood Quarry is sold as construction materials and used in the building of infrastructure projects. Depending on the final size of the crushed granite, it can be used for stormwater management, tracking pads, septic systems, driveway gravel, road base or road surfacing material, septic drain fields, bike trails, and underdrain construction.


Compliance & Regulation

The Ringwood Quarry is governed by Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) helps to reduce deaths, injuries, and illnesses in the nation’s mines with a variety of activities and programs. The Agency develops and enforces safety and health rules for all U.S. mines, and provides technical, educational and other types of assistance to mine operators. MSHA works cooperatively with industry, labor, and other federal and state agencies to improve safety and health conditions for all miners in the United States.

In addition, the Ringwood Quarry needs to abide by the principles and priorities of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).

A national leader. A balanced approach. A commitment to be guided by science. That is the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

For over 50 years, DEP has made New Jersey a stronger and fairer state by protecting our environment and public health. With hard work, exceptional knowledge and expertise, the DEP’s staff has made the agency an unfailing guardian of New Jersey’s precious natural and historic resources.

The DEP was established on April 22, 1970 – America’s first official Earth Day. Today, DEP employees in dozens of programs continue to advance innovative strategies to safeguard and enhance New Jersey’s air, water and land, and the health of its residents.

The Ringwood Quarry also operates in a manner in which all of the local ordinances set by the Borough of Ringwood are followed.

Braen has both a safety and environmental department to ensure that all of its operations are following and exceeding the safety protocols set forth by MSHA and the principles and priorities of the NJDEP. In addition, these two departments ensure that Braen is operating within the regulations set by other agencies on the local, state and federal level.

Braen always strives to go above and beyond, as a result, outside vendors are hired to provide additional help monitoring operations such as drilling and blasting.

How We Do What We Do

Braen’s miners extract or excavate the earth and then crush the material down into smaller sized spec meeting material.

No, blasting is not damaging your house. Blasting is highly regulated by the government. Both the government and universities have done studies to show where damage occurs and the regulations set forth by the government are below that.

Q How long is the quarry going to be there?

Chevron Arrow


The lifespan of the quarry will depend on production. There is a limited amount of reserves available, so if production increases, that will shorten the lifespan of the quarry. If production decreases, it will increase the lifespan of the quarry.

The Ringwood Quarry operates Monday through Friday from 7:00AM to 5:00PM.
