An application for a gravel mine at Johnson Lane and Farley Lane in Lockwood received approval from Yellowstone County Commissioners during a special review hearing last week.
Weaver Works, LLP, a company owned by Jim Weaver, will operate the mine in two phases. The first phase will be refilled with material from the second phase and the second phase will be reclaimed as a pond and wetland. Eventually the it will be developed into a building site.
The parcel of land involves 36.34 acres of which 12 acres will be used for gravel mining.
The proposal came to the commissioner with a unanimous recommendation for approval from the Zoning Commission.
