    Sand and gravel mining regulation

    Does anyone no of any good resources related to the regulation of modern sand and gravel mining? Our state does not really regulate it.

    Have you checked Bloomington or Bedford for their regs on mining? Those seem to be the areas most actively involved in open-pit mining in Indiana. There may also be some open-pit coal mining near Evansville, but I'm not sure about that. Here in south central Indiana, we have not had any mines in many, many years.

    NH Reference from our state laws:

    Try Hamilton County. Harrison County had their regs upheld in a court, the first time in Indiana. Beyond that, mining and timbering are exempt from local land use control in areas defined as rural and not in the floodplain, as you have found out.

    We have an article in our Land Use Code dealing with Sand and Gravel extraction specifically. Go to http://www.municode.com/Resources/ga...id=13307&sid=2, Chapter 49.65, Article II. You'll have to click the "more" button at the bottom left of the screen in order to see chapters after 20.25.
