Silica (Frac) Sand Mining - Minnesota Issues Resources

Silica sand (also commonly referred to as frac sand) is a crucial ingredient in the oil and natural gas extraction process known as fracking. The hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") process for oil and gas takes a mixture of proppant (usually frac sand), water, and chemicals and injects this mixture into a well under very high pressure.
