Frac Sand

The Importance of Frac Sand Processing. The production of oil and natural gas from shale deposits relies on the use of proppants to maintain the openings induced by hydraulic fracturing. The most common proppants are produced from high quality silica and sand deposits and are known as frac sand.

Frac Sand Mining

Mining, treating, and shipping frac sand have destructive effects on rural communities and natural landscapes. To extract silica, mining companies level bluffs and hills, replacing them with massive holes 100 feet deep. The purest silica is then isolated, which involves washing the sand with millions of gallons of chemical-laced water.
