This auction presents a terrific opportunity to purchase land near Sioux Falls, SD that has remarkable unbridled potential.  The location, the prospects for gravel and aggregate production, the long-term development potential and other attributes of this land make this a remarkable property!  This property is on the cusp of the occurring western development of Sioux Falls, SD and is in the heart of some of the most productive gravel, sand and aggregate materials in the Sioux Falls marketplace, evidenced by the operating mining operations in the vicinity, and with the depletion of some of these nearby operations, this property could be the future crown jewel for future material production.  Beyond the potential mining, this property has superb long-term development potential, evidenced by the housing in and around the area.  Presently this land is being utilized as agricultural farmland and according to FSA information this property as a combined parcel has approx. 194.04 acres of cropland; individually TRACT #1 has approx. 116.26 acres of cropland with a 54.75 acre corn base with a 173 bu. PLC yield and a 50.17 acre soybean base with a 35 bu. PLC yield; TRACT #2 has approx. 77.78 acres of cropland with a 36.63 acre corn base with a 173 bu. PLC yield and a 33.55 acre soybean base with a 35 bu. PLC yield; with both Farms enrolled under the ARC County Election of the USDA farm program. The non-tillable acres consist of a couple of grassland/drainage areas and roads.

The prospects for mining of gravel and other aggregates is prevalent based on borings and testing conducted on the property at the request and expense of the owners – the earliest being 1987 by SDGS Drilling Company, in 1999 by GEOTEK Engineering and Testing and most recently in October of 2020 by American Engineering Testing, Inc., with copies of these reports available upon request.  With the continued aggressive construction market in the Sioux Falls marketplace, the appetite and need for aggregate materials should flourish for many years to come, thus this property may provide a significant supply of material necessary to meet the future demands for construction materials.  Furthermore, subsequent to reclamation, this property could award some residential and other development opportunities similar to those that have occurred on nearby sites.  If you are in the market for a parcel or parcels of land with a myriad of amenities not commonly found on land situated in and around the Sioux Falls metro area that has significant present value and even more long term future value, then make plans to inspect this property and be in attendance at this auction.

*NOTE* – Individual Independent Testing for Gravel May be Allowed to a Limited Extent – Although Permission Must be Obtained Prior to Excavation by Backhoe or Other Equipment, with an Assurance in Writing that such test areas will be reclaimed and filled as near possible to the pre-excavated condition.  Prospective Buyers desiring to do testing on the property should contact the office of Chuck Sutton Auctioneer & Land Broker, LLC to procure testing permission forms.
