HomeFREDONIA Frac SandBRADY, TX Area Frac SandInformation

Our Brady,TX Area Frac Sand is sourced from open-pit mining operations near Brady and Voca, Texas.  Brady, TX Area (aka 'Brown" or 'Hickory') Frac Sand comes from the Hickory Sandstone Formation and has been mined for decades as a lower-cost alternative to more costly Ottawa, or "Northern White" sands.  These sands have a higher percentage of coarser screens (8/16, 12/20, and 16/30) than most other suitable frac sand deposits.
At closure pressures less than 4500 psi, these sands produce results that are identical, and in some cases superior, to more costly "Northern White"  Ottawa-type frac sands.
