Pattison Sand Company operates two underground mines: The Pattison Mine, and the Willie Mine. Both mines produce excellent quality sand from the St Peter formation. Entrance to either mine is limited to authorized and trained personnel. All visitors to the mines must use the Tag-in, Tag-out system. Tag board locations, and procedures will be explained to you by your guide prior to entry.
The Pattison Mine began production over 100 years ago under previous ownership & management. The company began producing sand from the Pattison mine in 2008. When the reserves in the Pattison mine are depleted, the primary source of production will change to the Willie Mine.
The Pattison mine entrance is northeast of the Shop area against the bluff. (The Portal AQ, pictured in the photo to the right.

The mine office is a portable building located in the center of the parking pad. Do not block mine equipment when parking, always park directly in front of the office.
