Position Statements

When ASGA issues a Position Statement it is intended to provide members, government, and the public with a formal perspective of where the ASGA stands on a topic or debate. All Position Statements are approved by the ASGA Board of Directors before being issued. To see an archive of ASGA position statements, click here.


Gravel Pricing/ Deposit Location Inquiries 

From time to time, the Alberta Sand and Gravel Association (ASGA) receives requests related to gravel prices over time, current gravel pricing, or questions related to the value of land with gravel deposits.  Since it is a market driven resource, producers determine pricing through consideration of a number of elements; including production costs, location, products, volumes and current availability of resources.

Anyone seeking information on gravel pricing should contact producers in the area they are inquiring about; the ASGA website listing of Regular Members or a referral from the local municipality can be a good starting point. Unfortunately, the ASGA cannot recommend any particular supplier or provide information, data or estimates on pricing of product, product delivery costs or land values.
