This 141 +/- acre parcel contains an active gravel operation based on a 12-acre pond with significant proven reserves of aggregates. The raw materials were dragged to the surface of the pond, deposited on-site and processed into rock and high grade gravel that is certified for any state project. The operation has existed for 15 years and sells primarily to 25 repeat customers. All aspects of the quarrying operation have been contracted out, except the loading of the finished product and weighing of inbound and outbound trucks. This part-time operation could easily be expanded into a full-time venture that could increase production significantly. With the recent rains in South Dakota, private contractors, townships, counties, and the state are creating a demand for the finished product for graveling roads. Production for this part-time business has averaged approximately 75,000 tons per year. Tillable ground is also available for farming. For future expansion, a rail line runs along the northeast edge of the property and might be used to construct a rail spur for loading of finished product into rail cars. The property also has a well for irrigation, should the new owner wish to irrigate the tillable acres. Well, septic, and electricity are present near the truck scale. To schedule your showing of this property, call Jim Shaeffer at (605) 553-3755.
