Superior Silica Sands LLC Key Developments

Superior Silica Sands Announces SandGuard(TM) Proppant Technology

Superior Silica Sands LLC announced the introduction of a unique, technically advanced proppant to the oil and gas industry. This new proppant, brand named "SandGuard(TM)", will improve the handling, inner-basin management and job-site implementation of the hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells. With a SandGuard treatment facility in Barron County, Wisconsin, SSS will have the ability to enhance the already strong qualities of its Northern White silica sand as a more protected proppant soon to be marketed to all major North American basins. By incorporating ArrMaz SandTec(TM) coating technology into the new SandGuard product line, SSS will begin commercial sales in December 2015. The treated sand production capacity is up to 650 tons per hour of finished product. The environmentally-friendly SandGuard product incurs reduced degradation compared to untreated sand, resulting in the minimization of dust to the customers, employees and contractors who manage the sand through the supply chain and at the well site. Additionally, the SandGuard product improves operational efficiencies since it reduces the need to use bulky mechanical dust control systems. The SandGuard product has proven to significantly reduce dust generation during handling as exhibited from numerous full scale field trials. These trials by major service companies have seen superior handling capabilities and no negative impact or issues with frac fluid compatibility.

Evergreen Transloading and Superior Silica Sands LLC to Opene Sexsmith, Alberta Mega Centre

Evergreen Transloading ('Evergreen') and Superior Silica Sands LLC ('SSS') announced the opening of a new Mega Centre sand transloading facility in Sexsmith, Alberta.

The site, located adjacent to CN Rail's current station in Grande Prairie, AB, will be operated by Evergreen and will provide exclusively Northern White silica sand from SSS. The facility initially opens with capacity for 45-railcars and two 2,000 ton silos, and will add four additional silos over the coming months. The total capacity will be 12,000 tons, expected to be fully in service by June 2014.
