PEACELAND / SPRINGBUCK AGGREGATES
Peaceland – Springbuck is a joint venture between Peaceland Oilfield Services and Springbuck Inc.
Peaceland – Springbuck has embarked on an aggressive program of securing and developing gravel pits and storage sites at strategic locations north west of Fort St John. We offer a extensive variety of quality, cost effective aggregate products.
Utilizing the latest equipment and methodology, we can produce almost any aggregate desired. Our multi-screen deck combination allows us to add or delete fines (binder) and to produce up to 4 products at one time. There for providing you with optimum results. Most of our gravel pits have a high concentration of larger rock, resulting in a high fracture content product. With settings to increase the fines, we can produce a product that will bind and pack extremely well. Furthermore, we try to carry a variety of specialized products such as drain rock, winter sand, or other products you may require.
Above all, teamed with the large Peaceland truck fleet, aggregates can safely and competitively be delivered along the Alaska Hwy from Mile 70 to Mile 190, and on all connecting roads in the area.
We test all products continuously as they are produced and results are made available to our clients.
Mile 116 Storage Site Inventory November 1, 2021
All products originate from our very hard Sikanni gravel from our Mile 171 quarries and feature high fracture, high rock content and contain a blend of fines resulting in a great ability to pack
Peaceland/Springbuck currently holds permits for 11 gravel pits / storage areas between Mile 95 and 182 along the Alaska Highway.

reclamation peaceland – springbuck
Peaceland-Springbuck takes pride in the reclamation of its depleted pits.
As soon as the aggregates have been extracted, we like to reclaim as we go. Currently Peaceland-Springbuck uses a seed mix that establishes the first year, there for giving cover to seedlings that will take off the second year. There is great satisfaction in seeing beautiful meadows and ponds where rock quarries were the year prior. Local wildlife returns to enjoy those reclaimed areas. Canada geese and ducks find our ponds, elk en deer discover the meadows. Clover is particularly attractive to spring bear cubs.
HRFN Lands Manager Roslyn Notseta offers suggestions.
This summer Roslyn Notseta, Lands Manager of Halfway River First Nation, and two members of her team joined Viktor Wiens and Adrian Erickson from Peaceland – Springbuck, at one of the recently reclaimed pits. We spend a few hours walking the area and comparing conventional reclamation methods to newer ways, which emphasize local species taking root instead of seed crops.
As we walked the perimeter, an area not seeded, displayed an amazing array of natural occurring flora, as pointed out by Roslyn. Tiny seedlings started growing among the trees stumps and original topsoil that had been pulled back onto depleted areas.Roslyn and her team are suggesting an experimental grid of a variety of reclamation methods for next year. We are curious to find out what results this will render.
SPRINGS and tall groves
Currently some of our aggregate pits feature areas of untouched patches that have springs and groves of beautiful tall trees. It makes sense to us to leave those and work around these areas as we develop the pits for mining.
