Mining/Extraction

Renville County is home to numerous mining operations that extract and process materials such as sand, gravel, granite, kaolin clay (used for pottery, paper coating, and other unique applications), and fill or borrow soils.

The Renville County Land Use Ordinance requires any person or company that proposes the mining or extraction of sand, gravel, granite, or any other mineral to apply for and be granted a Intermin Use Permit (IUP) by the Renville County Board of Commissioners.

For more information on mining/extraction permitting contact the Environmental Services Office at 320-523-3768.
