The 1.5 million-ton-per-year Gen6 mine in Red River Parish will produce both 40/70 and 100 mesh Red River White sand. Because Red River Parish is in the core of the Haynesville Shale, we deliver significant cost savings by eliminating the need to ship sand by train and significantly reducing trucking costs. It is estimated that using Gen6 in-basin frac sand can save up to $180,000 per well in trucking costs and $750,000 per well in rail or barging cost.
