Abstract
In response to inquiries from various governmental bodies, private industry, and the general public conerning local regulation of mining, the federal Bureau of Mines liaison office in Lansing, Michigan, conducted a study of local zoning ordinances and their effects on mining in Michigan. The results suggest that the zoning ordinance is a primary tool to regulate mining operations, including the removal of sand and gravel. Generally, local ordinances, including regulations of mining, exist to prevent nuisance situations and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the township. However, a review of zoning ordinances adopted during the past few years also indicates a trend towards regulations that provide mineral reservation or conservation and assure reclamation or restoration of the mining site.
