Minick Tour Featured in

February 17, 2015Minick Staffin the NEWS, #QUARRY TOURS

We were honored to be featured in Stone World Magazine, which picked up the story of our annual quarry tour.

"The 2014 event included stops at the Oklahoma Hackett quarry, Arkansas sandstone quarry, Oklahoma Farmers quarry and the Oklahoma Tamaha Blue quarry. Recently, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) approved eight Continuing Education Units for the two-day quarry tour, which provided education on the quarrying and fabrication of Oklahoma and Arkansas sandstone."

"During this tour, we had the opportunity to not only teach, but learn," said Mayzak (Minick Commercial and Architectural Sales Manager). "We found out from the architect and landscape architect perspective what stone accomplishes for them in the creative process. We were able to have some question-and-answer time on successful projects as well as some upcoming things in the design phase. Armed with this, we were able to discuss how there may be limitations with the stone—and how to call stone out to avoid them, or if necessary, request a different material all together."

OCTOBER 6, 2014 MINICK STAFF QUARRY TOURS, presentations

Special thanks to all our 31 guests who attended our 2014 Quarry Tour. The tour included the Rock-It Natural Stone quarries to see first hand where and how stone is extracted. There were also presentations on how to best use natural stone, how it is produced and more. Everyone had a great time and, in our opinion, it was our best tour yet. Next year’s event is planned for October 1-2. We hope you can join us. Read more
