Ten miles southwest of Cardston, Alberta, you will find ‘Rock Solid Investor.’  Comprised of two land titles, this Parcel includes a sixteen-acre subdivision along the east boundary with a shared pond between the two titles; both titles will sell as one Parcel on sale day.  ‘Rock Solid Investor’ is the ultimate story of buying today to invest in the future.  The aggregate testing that has been carried out on the entire 130 acres confirms that the quarter section is sitting on a massive deposit of high-quality aggregate.  The report indicates a proven reserve of over 2 million cubic meters.  The raw product that makes up the resource is of sufficient size to support making a wide range of manufactured products.  Do the math on selling off five, 40 tonne tridem loads of crushed aggregate every day of the week for the next sixty years, and you get an idea of the value at play - even after accounting for a generous amount of rejected material.  This is not a maybe investment, this is for real.  They don't make it anymore, and aggregate is one of the few commodities seemingly increasing in value every year.  As aggregate prices increase in Southern Alberta, at some point the hammer will trip on the economics of this play, especially given its lack of overburden.  The potential US market is accessible at Carway Crossing, just over 16 miles to the southeast.

While you wait for the aggregate play to come to fruition, you may wish to sit back and relax and enjoy the recreational aspect of the quarter itself.  Nature has been kind to ‘Rock Solid Investor,’ with an overcoat of native pasture that offers majestic views of Chief Mountain, which has a meaningful significance to our Indigenous people.  Access is never an issue with developed road allowances on two sides, including a paved highway on the south.  Situated in the eastern foothills, ‘Rock Solid Investor’ sits in a sweet spot for recreation.  Some may consider developing the entire quarter for recreation use by converting the future excavation site into a deep, crystal-clear lake.  If you follow the paved road less than 5 miles to the south, you will gain access to the Police Outpost Provincial Park.  Waterton National Park is just a 20-minute drive to the west, and the New Heritage Ranch Development, with 40 lots for cabins, is a mere 5 minutes away.
