Community Pits & Common Use Areas for Landscape Rock, Gravel and other Mineral Materials
The Bruneau Field Office has a wide variety of salable minerals available to the public including sand and gravel, building stone, clay, cinders, decorative rock, limestone, and petrified wood. The public can access these resources through purchase of a BLM permit. Although the majority of sand and gravel is used by the Idaho Department of Transportation and the Owyhee County Highway District, there is increasing public demand for decorative and landscaping rock form public lands. BLM staff can help you select rock that meets your needs and they’ll provide a map to the site where you can collect the material.
The following table describes Bruneau mineral materials sites. The site names link to photos of the rocks and materials available at each site, and the map provides the general locations of the sites. Please contact the Bruneau Field Office for more information about obtaining a permit for these mineral resources.
