The South Dakota Mining Tax Initiative, also known as Initiative 2, was on the November 8, 1988 ballot in South Dakota as an indirect initiated state statute, where it was defeated. The measure would have imposed a four percent gross sales tax on metallic minerals from large-scale surface mines. The measure would have allocated the tax to the Department of Water and Natural Resources, a Minesite Cleanup Fund and the Unreclaimed Lands Fund.[1][2]
