Corliss Resources has been helping the Sumner/Bonney Lake community grow and prosper since 1892.
For multiple generations, the Corliss family has owned and operated its mining facility at the base of the Sumner Grade, providing processed aggregate products to build and maintain much of the region’s vital infrastructure.
So much of what we value in our communities starts with aggregate: whether it is the foundation or patio for your home, school, office or favorite coffee stand; the parking lot for your grocery store; or the trail that you walk on to recreate – these all exist due to aggregate.
Almost everything we all enjoy in our community contains aggregate. All development or redevelopment activities are possible due to this important ingredient. Streets, sidewalks, parking lots, park trails, schools, churches, municipal buildings, and sewer utilities all exist due to aggregate.
Without local suppliers, these resources would be considerably more expensive. Short shipping distances keep fuel costs down and reduce impacts to our already congested and deteriorating transportation system.
While the demand for processed aggregate is steadily increasing, several other mines in the area are reported to be closing due to exhaustion of their resource reserves. As a solution to the challenge, Corliss Resources proposes mining 146 acres adjacent to the existing Sumner mine. We invite our neighbors to learn more about the Myers Road Mine proposal and to participate in the approval process.
We’d love to hear your comments or answer any questions you have about the Myers Road project.
