Superior Silica Sands LLC Key Developments

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 Sexsmith Mega Centre will serve the strong demand for high quality, Northern White silica sand as proppant for the oil and gas industry in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. 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.

Superior Silica Sands LLC Builds an 85-Acre Sand Processing Plant and Rail Storage Facility

Canadian National Railway Company and Superior Silica Sands announced a multi-year agreement to move frac sand from a new processing plant now under construction in northern Wisconsin. Superior Silica Sands is building an 85-acre sand processing plant and rail storage facility adjacent to CN's Barron Subdivision near Poskin, Wis., capable of producing up to 2.4 million tons per year of high-quality frac sand products. CN this spring launched a $35-million project to restore nearly 40 miles of track between Ladysmith and Barron, Wis. CN will upgrade rail and replace railroad ties, repair culverts and bridges, and restore rail service along the line. The Barron Subdivision will connect to CN's North American rail network at Ladysmith and will be in service later this year. CN will provide rail service to the new plant, moving frac sand from northern Wisconsin to shale drilling areas across North America, including Western Canada. Superior Silica Sands broke ground on the processing plant and rail storage yard this month and expects to start production this November. Superior Silica Sands has invested more than $50 million in this frac sand operation, which is expected to bring more than 100 new jobs to the area.
