Posted By RJ Alpers, Monday, December 4, 2017

Unimin Corp. has announced that it will transfer the rights to its Magazine Mine, located in Alexander County, Illinois, to the Organization for Bat Conservation. The mine site, which was originally used to extract microcrystalline silica, discovered that it was home to several thousand bats including the endangered Indiana bat, Little Brown Bat, and the Long-Eared Myotis Bat.

Rob Mies, executive director for the Organization for Bat Conservation stated “The transfer of the Magazine Mine is a huge step in protecting the rare and endangered Indiana Bat,” Adding, “We are proud to partner with Unimin in this endeavor”.
