DNR approves Graymont’s proposal

Following a recommendation from Department of Natural Resources officials, DNR Director Keith Creagh announced today his approval of a land transaction proposal from Graymont, Inc. Creagh announced his decision at today’s Natural Resources Commission meeting in Roscommon, Michigan.

Graymont is planning a limestone mining operation in the Upper Peninsula’s Mackinac County, near the town of Rexton. The company will have to comply with all applicable state and local regulations before mining can occur.

In January DNR officials identified several concerns with Graymont’s proposal and recommended against its approval by the director. In response to those concerns, Graymont revised its application to the state. As a result of those revisions and the recommendation from DNR officials, Creagh approved the transaction.
