Frac Sand Mining In the Upper Midwest

Frac sand mining in our backyard, Alaska fought the Pebble mine. It looks like we have our own fight in the Midwest. Check out the Frac Sand Frisbee a blog dedicated to fighting the sand mines. I think it's a fight worth picking.


The Frac Sand Frisbee is a blog about frac sand mining in the Driftless Area of the upper Midwest.  It turns out that, in addition to being a place of great natural beauty, this place is home to some of the best sand in the world for frac mining of natural gas.  Yep, our sleepy little region just turned into Alaska and things are moving fast.

This is a place for people (mostly me, Mikey O’Connor right now) to post useful information, good ideas, updates on events, background information and etc. about the fast moving frac-sand mining conversation.  It has a strong bias towards Buffalo County because that’s where we live.
