Operations


Centrally located in the St. Peters formation, our premier mining facility will produce over 1.5 million tons of Northern White proppant every year.


As a portfolio company of a privately held family business with 50 years of mining and aggregate production expertise, Capital Sand is well equipped for excellence in the frac sand business.Our plant in the St. Peter’s Formation is a modernized wet and dry facility, producing primarily 40/70 and 100 Mesh Northern White Sand.

Capital Sand promises reliable production, with year-round operations. Our Southeast Missouri location has intrinsic advantages driven by a more moderate climate than northern mines, and superior geographic positioning for a Northern White producer. We are not restricted by harsh winter conditions, and we can quickly deliver our product to most domestic shale basins via barge or rail.

Barge: access to the Mississippi River, Ohio River and inland waterways. We have longstanding barging partnerships that connect us to Eagle Ford, Midconn, Haynesville and TMS to the south, and the Marcellus and Utica shale plays to the north via the Ohio River. We have terminals and storage facilities in Bellaire, OH & Industry, PA.


Rail: access to four Class I railroads: Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Norfolk Southern, CSX. We are able to load customer railcars on the BNSF or UP from Cape Girardeau, MO or onto the NS or CSX out of the East St. Louis intermodal terminal.


We are continuously expanding our transload network and welcome the opportunity to service customers through their existing facilities.
