Crude Kaolin Mining

Crude Kaolin Mining

Howard Sheppard, our founder, first began hauling crude kaolin in Georgia back in 1943. Today, our company has over 130 dump trucks and over 60 pieces of heavy-duty equipment operating through multiple kaolin companies located in middle Georgia. Everyday our fleet is stretched over the entire middle Georgia area hauling from many different pits to multiple blunger sites for multiple kaolin companies. In fact, we provide complete turnkey service: we load it, haul it, stockpile it at the blunger site, and maintain all the pits and haul roads.

 
Kaolin is one of Georgia's largest natural resources. Kaolin's economic impact is felt throughout the State of Georgia from the Port of Savannah to rural Middle Georgia. The state of Georgia leads the nation in clay production and is recognized as a world leader in the mining, production, processing, and application of kaolin products.
