McCook quarry operations delayed by icy conditions

March 17, 2014 (MCCOOK, Ill.)

Company officials planned to resume operations on Monday, but icy conditions at the blast point forced them to delay explosions until Tuesday.

The quarry voluntarily suspended operations back in November following a 3.2 magnitude seismic event.

That event happened after a routine quarry blast.

The company says after consulting with scientists, it's believed the two events were not related.
