Frac Sand and Related Natural Resources in Wisconsin

Wisconsin has some of the best frac sand in the world, and since 2011 the state has seen a large increase in frac sand mines, processing plants, and rail loading facilities. This talk will provide information on what frac sand is, how it is used, why and how it is being mined in Wisconsin, its connection to other natural resources, and research being undertaken at the WGNHS related to frac sand.
