SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. — The Michigan DNR is hosting a public meeting Wednesday, Jan. 28, to discuss the pending proposals from Graymont, Inc. for a limestone mine in the U.P. near Rexton. The meeting is scheduled for 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the High School Auditorium at Tahquamenon Area Schools located at 700 Newberry Ave. in Newberry.
Kewadin Casinos busses will transport tribal members from the surrounding community to the public meeting. Please see the schedule at the bottom of the page.
Sault Tribe and many U.P. citizens oppose the sale of 10,000 acres of land near Rexton for the mine. The land sits in the middle of the tribe's 1836 treaty ceded territory and for generations has been used by Native and non-Native hunters alike.
The DNR has made it clear that public involvement is critical and citizen input is vital to making a decision.
At the meeting, DNR staff will provide an overview of Graymont's proposals submitted and details on the recommendation made to DNR Director Keith Creagh. (Six DNR Directors have asked him to deny the sale.) Starting at roughly 6:15 p.m. and ending at 8:30 p.m., the public will have the opportunity to provide both written and oral comments. A summary of all comments will be provided to Creagh, who is scheduled to make a decision on the proposals at the Feb. 12 Natural Resources Commission meeting in Lansing.
Transportation will be available from St. Ignace, Hessel and Sault Ste. Marie. Departure times and locations are as follows:
– St. Ignace Casino with a departure time of 4 p.m.
– Hessel Casino with a departure time of 4 p.m.

Those members that are interested in transportation can reserve a seat with Jamie AUBE at 906-632-0530 ext. 54770.
