Mining Products


Silver Creek's mining operation officially began operations in 1983. We are still one of the top-producing surface mines in this region. 

Our material meets the toughest specifications and have been used in many of the major construction projects that you see in and surrounding Tarrant County from homesites and heavy highway construction to Barnett Shale well pad sites, municipal, and private projects.

Our equipment and operators are up to the challenge of the most demanding of jobs! We operate a fleet of the newest CAT equipment including a 980K loader and a CAT 374 Excavator.

Select Fill Composition: This is a perfect blend of excavated clay and sand. Mined from the water table, this virgin material has consistent moisture content, color and compaction. Our PI meets the strictest of specifications and stays consistent; it traditionally stays between 4-12. However, we can custom mix it for your job. We excavate our Select Fill with hydraulic excavators after being ripped and broken up with our Cat D8T Bulldozer. We then load with our Cat 980 Front End Loader. We also load with our Hitachi 450 Excavators during high volumes. We are more than capable of handling the most demanding projects, large or small. Applications: Our Select Fill is ideal for building foundations, back filling retaining walls and home pad sites. $4.85 Per Cubic Yard
