Comparing April 2022 to the same month in previous years, this facility has not achieved this level of production since 2019 and we are proud of how quickly and efficiently we have been able to grow our operations. We have great people who are committed to both the success of our customers and the integrity of our business, and it’s exciting to lead and be part of the renaissance underway here.”

Robert Beekhuizen, Chief Executive Officer of Athabasca Minerals, states: “I’m very proud of both the management and operations team of AMI Silica LLC. We only took custody of the sand mine, processing plant and transload at the beginning of March this year and already they are finding their stride. The fundamentals in the sand market are turning up, and the Hixton team is rallying to meet the rising demand. We see a promising future ahead, and in due course, we also aim to leverage the many years of operating knowledge and expertise resident at the Hixton facility to support our upcoming Prosvita Sand Project in Alberta.”
