Knife River is one of the largest construction materials and contracting companies in the United States, with over 5,600 team members. Turner Mining Group will be partnering with Knife Rifer to provide greenfield development, plant location grading and settling pond construction.

Turner Mining Group is able to provide Knife River a more efficient contracting solution relative to other options.
