Graymont Land Transaction
  • Graymont Proposal

     

    The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has received a REVISED land transaction application from Graymont, Inc., proposing development of a limestone mine and limestone processing facility in northern Mackinac County near the town of Rexton.<p>

    The DNR will thoroughly review the revised application for environmental, legal and social impacts. Because this review entails much of the same acreage originally proposed for acquisition, the total review time will be less than the original review. The review will still include each of the resource-managing divisions within the DNR, including Forest Resources, Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks and Recreation. A review of the application will also be conducted by the DNR's Minerals Management Section.

    As a result of this review, staff will make a recommendation to DNR Director Keith Creagh, who has the authority to make a final decision on the proposal. Creagh will make his decision at a future Natural Resources Commission meeting.

Graymont Mineral Exchange
  • Graymont Mineral ExchangeIn June, Graymont, Inc. submitted a proposal to exchange more than 1,700 acres of mineral rights with the DNR near the Rexton area in the eastern Upper Peninsula. The offered minerals are under state-managed surface and the desired minerals are located under federally owned surface within the Hiawatha National Forest. This proposal will receive a similar review and decision process as the original Graymont land transaction application.
