Notes: This is a library of local government ordinances and permits that have been approved for the regulation of silica sand projects. It is created for reference by local governments. The library includes two types of documents. Most are excerpts of larger zoning ordinances, sections of the zoning ordinances that do or could apply to mining, processing, or transporting of silica sand. The second type of document is permits, approvals, or denials of specific projects.

Title: Can markets value air quality? A meta-analysis of hedonic property value models

Journal: Journal of political economy

Pages: 209-227

ISSN: 0022-3808

Abstract: This paper reports the results of a statistical summary of estimates of the marginal willingness to pay (MWTP) for reducing particulate matter from hedonic property value models developed between 1967 and 1988. Results using both ordinary least squares and minimum absolute deviation estimators suggest that market conditions and the procedures used to implement the hedonic models were important to the resulting MWTP estimates. The interquartile range for these estimated marginal values (measured as a change in asset prices) lies between zero and $98.52 (in 1982-84 dollars) for a one-unit reduction in total suspended particulates (in micrograms per cubic meter). The mean MWTP is nearly five times the median ($109.90 vs. $22.40), suggesting that outliers are important influences to any summary statistics for these estimates.

ISSN: 0048-749X

Abstract: The rapid expansion of oil and gas extraction in large parts of the Marcellus fields in the Appalachian Basin and the Bakken fields in the Williston Basin of the Dakotas and Montana has reignited debate over the role of natural resource extraction as a rural economic growth strategy. While the popular media has focused on hydraulic fracturing and natural gas and oil production, there has been significant interest in silicon sand mining in western Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota. This “frack sand” is used in oil and gas hydraulic fracturing activity. In this study we explore the relationship between non-oil and gas mining (NAICS 212) activities and economic growth for nonmetropolitan U.S. counties for the period 2000 to 2007. We find robust results suggesting that non-oil and gas mining is associated with lower population growth, and a positive impact on per capita income, but has no impact on employment growth.

Title: Does Mining Influence Rural Economic Growth?

Journal: Journal of Regional Analysis & Policy

Volume: 44

Issue: 1

Pages: 36-48

Date: 2014

Abstract: The influence of non-oil and gas mining (NAICS 212) activity on U.S. rural (nonmetropolitan) economic growth is modeled using a simple Barro-type growth framework. Because the type of mining examined tends to be clustered in regions of Appalachia and the Mountain West, we allow for spatial heterogeneity in the underlying growth process. We find that the global least square results suggest that higher dependency on non-oil and gas mining is associated with higher rates of income growth over the 2000 to 2011 time period. This relationship, however, varies significantly across the U.S. The positive relationship holds for much of the eastern part of the U.S., but a negative relationship is seen in parts of the Mountain West, and no relationship is observed for the Pacific West and much of the area associated with the Mississippi River Basin. Because of this spatial heterogeneity, care must be taken in making generalizations about non-oil and gas mining and rural economic growth.

Title: Tools to Assist Local Governments in Planning and Regulating Silica Sand Projects

Pages: 202

Government Body: State of Minnesota Environmental Quality Board

Keywords: silica, sand, mining, processes, local regulation

Abstract: This document is essentially a box of tools available for consideration by local governmental units (LGUs). In some situations, several tools may be chosen and used in conjunction with other tools in order to address a particular concern. The toolbox also includes instructions on how to use the tools themselves. As with any box of tools, the user should decide what is to be built before selecting a tool. Not all tools are appropriate for a given situation and, like any tool, each one should be used properly. The EQB acknowledges these are not the only tools available to local governments.

Pages: 92

Government Body: State of Minnesota Environmental Quality Board

Keywords: silica, sand, mining, processes, comparison to aggregate mining.

Abstract: This report provides a summary of information relevant to the questions at hand. It does not pretend to be encyclopedic. The report does not advocate a particular perspective on the silica sand issues: it is not pro- or anti-silica sand mining. The intent is to provide a basis for further research, whether that occurs through a GEIS or by other means. It is recognized that the information presented here can and should be augmented and improved as more is learned.

Issue: Draft

Pages: 46

Government Body: State of Minnesota

Keywords: silica, sand, mining, processes, comparison to aggregate mining.

Abstract: In 2012 the Environmental Quality Board received a petition supporting the preparation of a Generic Environmental Impact Statement to analyze the potential environmental effects of the industry. Such a study would require significant time and financial resources. While the preparation of a GEIS remains an option, the EQB has prepared this report on silica sand in an attempt to assemble what we know about the topic and what we don‘t know.
