Mt. Hope Rock Products blasts, blends, sorts, and sells rock at its Wharton, N. J., quarry, about 25 miles west of Newark, N. J. Roughly 80 percent of the quarry's output is concrete and asphalt aggregate ranging in size from sand up to 0.75 inches. Another 15 percent of the quarry's output is 2.5-inch railroad ballast and 1.5-inch drainage stone. The remainder of the quarry's output includes blends used as bases underneath Astroturf and 4-by-8-inch gabion stone for slope protection and reservoir lining.
