- A proposed frac sand mine appears to have the green light in far western Wisconsin, after a state appeals court upheld Buffalo County’s approval of the project, it was reported on WTAQ radio. A three-judge panel in Wausau, Wis., affirmed a circuit judge’s refusal to overturn a conditional use permit for R-and-J Rolling Acres to run a 125-acre silica-sand operation. The mine’s developer, Glacier Sands, said there were no laws against non-metallic mining in the county’s agricultural district – and there were no laws preventing a revised application from being taken up.
