Wisconsin Sand Mine Suspends Operations

It’s always a shame to see this happen, but hopefully they will be able to reopen when the market improves again. The sand isn’t going anywhere.

A frac sand mine and processing center in Chippewa County is shutting down because of poor market conditions.

Preferred Sands announced Thursday that it will temporarily suspend operations at its mine and processing facility near the City of Bloomer. The company declined to comment, but said in a press release that current market conditions forced the shutdown.
