It’s a huge granite quarry located on Georgia’s southeastern coast.
It’s the largest quarry in the state, with a lot of granite on it.
But it’s also one of the most expensive to remove.
A lot of that granite comes from a quarry that was built in the 1800s.
There are plans to turn it into a $40 million mixed-use development, which would include hotels, office space, a convention center, restaurants and a shopping mall.
The state says it’ll pay for the project.
But the quarry isn’t going anywhere.
Georgia’s Stone Mountain quarry.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is looking to remove a lot more granite than the 1.5 million tons that were removed from the quarry last year.
That’s because Georgia’s granite is a very hard rock, which means it will take years for the DNR to remove it.
Stone Mountain is one of two quarries in the country that are in serious need of removal.
The other is the Doylestown quarry in Pennsylvania.
The DNR is also trying to make up for the $2.5 billion cost of the quarry by reducing the size of the project and reducing the number of workers.
But that’s not going to be easy.
The Stone Mountain project, which is expected to cost $8 billion, was approved by the Georgia Legislature in July and the state is expected this year to request $2 billion from the Federal Highway Administration.
If the federal grant is approved, Georgia’s Stone Mount will begin work in 2020.
The state will be allowed to use only a small portion of the $8.4 billion to help pay for it, which the Dniester Times reports is a lot for a state that doesn’t have enough funds to do so.
Stone Mount has been under contract with the Dnr for about 20 years.
The Department of Environmental Management (DEEM) will work with Georgia’s Department of Transportation and the National Park Service (NPS) to determine the best way to get the project started.
The DEEM also will oversee the process of securing federal funds to complete the project, according to the DNB.
The company that owns the quarry said in a statement to the Times that it’s not moving forward with the project because of the uncertainty.
“Stone Mountain is the most challenging quarry in North America to manage due to its unique geological features and unique physical characteristics,” the statement read.
“The Dnr will continue to review the feasibility of the site and all the necessary environmental impact statements to make the best possible investment in the best future for the region and the world.”
The Dniedter Times reported in July that the state was in negotiations with several potential buyers for the quarry.
One of those potential buyers is the State of Georgia, which has a $4.2 billion plan to turn Stone Mountain into a massive shopping mall, with restaurants and other retail businesses.
Stone Mountain’s owner, Cebu City of Commerce, said in the statement that it was “in discussions with the State to make an offer to buy the quarry, and the State is expected on the way to make a decision soon.”
The company said it expects to hold a public meeting on the site’s future in 2019.
