On April 24, 2018 ASI Archaeological & Cultural Heritage Services completed Stage 3 archeology and fieldwork at the Aldershot Quarry East site. Thirteen one-metre square test units recovered 4 flakes of Onondaga or Lockport Formation chert, all in the immediate vicinity of the original finds. These flakes are being processed and analyzed in ASI’s Burlington office. Preliminary results suggest the site would not meet the criteria typically employed to recommend such a site for Stage 4 mitigation.
Representatives of the Six Nations of the Grand River and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation were present on site. First Nation monitors expressed no concerns or objections to ASI recommendations or findings. Recommendations are subject to review by MTCS.
Meridian Brick has committed to neighbours, agencies and the City of Burlington to initially removing no more than eight trees within Stage 1 of the Aldershot East project. Acknowledging this commitment, Meridian’s ecologist has marked seven trees to be removed in March in order to create an access ramp, erect protective fencing for species at risk and transplant at-risk shrub species. Removal will occur on Thursday, March 22 and Friday, March 23, 2018.

Being a good neighbour means doing our part to keep you informed about what’s happening with Aldershot East, the third phase of the Aldershot Quarry.
Meridian Brick has launched this website to collect and communicate as much information as possible on the project directly to our neighbours. Here, you’ll find updates on the project, information on a wide range of studies, and facts about both the project and Meridian Brick.
When the Tyandaga West subdivision was first proposed, Meridian Brick agreed to implement various controls to ensure that the subdivision would be compatible with the existing quarry. We’re standing by that commitment to be a good neighbour, and we’re doing our part to ensure the East Quarry project proceeds with a minimum of impact on neighbours, residents and the environment.
As this project moves along, Meridian Brick will continue to engage with residents and share information about the project. We will do our best to listen to residents’ concerns and opinions.
