Thank you for your interest in USG’s future in Alabaster.
What is happening?
USG proposes to purchase 580 acres of land, with mineral rights, adjacent to our existing gypsum quarry in Alabaster Township, Michigan.
Where is this expansion planned?
The agreement involves property immediately adjacent to the western boundary of USG’s existing Alabaster quarry, south of Tawas.
What is currently on the property now?
The property has no dedicated trails, parks or infrastructure on it, and is used mostly by local hunters. The Department of Natural Resources cleared timber on from it last year.
