Sandhill Materials Inc. (Sandhill) is an aggregate development and sales company producing high quality sand and gravel materials. Our Sandhill resource has supplied quality aggregates in the local market over the past 75 years and is ideally situated to support development projects in northwest British Columbia. Located in Kitimat, BC, the Sandhill aggregate resource is a 267-hectare property in close proximity to port facilities with ice-free, sheltered, deep-water passage.
