Miller Canfield's internal team, along various other lobbyists and communication professionals, facilitated the expansion of a mineral mining operation in northeastern lower Michigan for a large national mining and material processing/manufacturer of native gypsum. After several years of exploring the potential for a land-swap transaction with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, our team shifted focus and pursued an outright land acquisition from the State of Michigan of nearly 1,000 acres. The project was the largest sale of land and mineral interests by the Michigan DNR in several years and involved one of the largest wetland mitigation projects in the state's recent history.
