Utah company to spare recently discovered petroglyphs as part of USBLM-approved gravel pit expansion

A local mining company has decided to leave rocks containing ancient petroglyphs in place rather than move them as part of an anticipated gravel pit expansion.


Kilgore Companies, which has operated in the Benjamin area for years, submitted notice of intent to expand its gravel mining operation in Benjamin from 44 to 97 acres. That was approved in August 2017 by the Bureau of Land Management.
