The Best Rock Mine is located in the heart of the Western Colorado growth corridor in the eclectic town of Delta. Located just off Highway 50 between the rapidly expanding cities of Grand Junction and Montrose, the operation lies in the perfect service location. The Union Pacific Railroad borders the property for 1.1 miles and has a commercial crossing already in place, with the potential for a future rail spur.

The mine contains an estimated eight to ten million tons of available high quality aggregate. Mining operations broke ground in the Spring of 2024 and are fully operational. The Colorado Mining Permit allows for very lucrative cement and asphalt batch plants to be operated on site. Three phase electrical power, a six inch natural gas line, and a city sewer line are already in place. New dump trucks, water truck, wheel loader, dozer, scraper, and scale/house to be included in a sale.

This property is surrounded by beautiful cottonwood lined rivers on three sides that provide for some very unique hunting and fishing opportunities. Majestic views of the Grand Mesa and the West Elk Mountain Range provide for a very scenic backdrop for the property. 11.45 CFS of historic water rights irrigate just under 200 acres of some of the best farm ground in the state. The farming operation provides for a great supplemental revenue stream for the mining operation. There are also two homes, two large equipment shops, and numerous other outbuildings on the property.
