A northwestern Wisconsin company has applied for a 60-year permit to expand its sand mine.  

Chippewa Sand Co. hopes to expand its roughly 175-acre site near Bloomer to more than 1,000 acres, and are expected to explain their plan at a preliminary meeting June 20. 

Chippewa County will hold a public hearing on the permit June 26. 

Chippewa Sand will also need to obtain a general storm water permit from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
