Quarrying permits and leases

The Department of Lands issues quarrying permits and quarrying leases on Commissioner’s and Territorial Lands for the purpose of extracting sand, gravel, stone, loam, and other types of granular material. Quarrying permits typically provide short-term access while quarrying leases provide long-term access to granular materials.
