Tiller Corporation began hauling sand and gravel this week from its Zavoral Mine in Scandia, Minnesota, and intends to continue hauling until Christmas week, Forest Lake Times reports.

The company started hauling on Monday and is expected to finish around December 20.

The mine reopened in early September after the Scandia City Council unanimously approved the project.

Tiller will mine 64 acres of the 114-acre Scandia site for 3.3 years, extracting up to 1.2 million tons of gravel. Once mining is complete, the company will reclaim it.

Forest Lake Times notes that the reclaimed land will have  dry prairie, mesic prairie and coniferous woodland plants.
