Graymont puts in revised bid to develop Michigan limestone mine

Graymont , a Canadian company has submitted another revised application to develop a limestone mine and processing site near Rexton in the Upper Peninsula, Michigan.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the changes from Graymont are in response to concerns from the agency as well as the public. Department of Natural Resources director Keith Creagh is expected to get a recommendation from his staff at Thursday’s Natural Resources Commission meeting in Lansing.

Graymont wants mining privileges on about 10,360 acres of state-owned land. It also submitted revisions of a mineral exchange application. Graymont would pay the state 18.75 cents for each ton of extracted limestone. That money would go to the State Parks Endowment Fund.

Decisions from Creagh on both applications are expected at the February 12 NRC meeting.
