Categories: Data Sheets, Facilities

Our Wisconsin sand operations (Augusta, Blair, Whitehall, Wyeville) are unit-train-capable facilities with total annual capacity of 10.4 million tons of premium Northern White frac sand. Sourced from a Pleistocene alluvial flow deposit of reworked, quartz-rich, Cambrian period sandstones, our Wisconsin natural proppants are geologically and texturally mature, exhibiting exceptional purity, shape, strength and conductivity.
