When two of Minnesota Sands’ proposed mines (the Yoder and Dabelstein mines in Saratoga Township, Winona County) went through the EAW process this winter, the county received 75 comments from local citizens, state agencies and other experts overwhelmingly calling for an in-depth EIS. If you are one of those who commented, bring the issues you raised at that time to the People’s EIS Kickoff Meeting on July 9. If not, come anyway to share the concerns you have about the proposed mines in: Saratoga Township; Pilot Mound Township, Fillmore County; and Yucatan and Houston townships, Houston County. This proposed project would also have direct impacts on residents in a much broader area; the truck hauling routes and final sand processing destinations have yet to be disclosed for most of the mines.
