Proximity to the population centers along the Wasatch Front puts the Salt Lake Field Office  at the forefront of providing mineral materials for construction of roads, highways and commercial and residential development. Currently, the Salt Lake Field Office has active contracts for private extraction of sand and gravel and building stone and free use permits with entities of state and local government for sand and gravel deposits in Utah, Tooele, Box Elder, and Rich Counties.

The Salt Lake Field Office also offers permits to private individuals to remove quantities of landscape rock and building stone in certain identified areas in the field office. Interested individuals should contact the main office at (801) 977-4300 for information on the location and cost of these permits.
