Our Tyler facility uses natural gas and electricity to produce whole grain silica through surface mining methods. The plant produces 40/70 Mesh and 100 Mesh sand, utilizing 12 storage silos with over 10,000 tons of capacity and 5 lanes for truck loadout operations. The reserves at Tyler contain mostly unconsolidated sand of the Queen City Sand formation (Eocene Age).

This plant's fully automated, state-of-the-art facility became operational in 2011 and features one of the industry’s largest on-site storage capacities. The plant was expanded in 2014 and produces a range of API/ISO certified frac sand grades. Its location in Northeast Texas allows it to ship regional sand directly to the wellheads in the Texas and Louisiana basins by truck. 

The site was purchased in 2008 by New Birmingham Inc., an industrial minerals and logistics company, and became a leading producer of the silica sand or proppant needed for hydraulic fracturing. We acquired the Tyler facility in 2016.

It is located approximately 9 miles north of Tyler, Texas in Smith County and is located immediately adjacent to U.S. Interstate 20. 


The Tyler, TX plant practices a "leave it better than we found it" policy when it comes to the environment. We work closely with local, state, and federal agencies to ensure regulatory compliance but also believe in going above and beyond what is required for environmental protection and restoration.
