Silica Statistics and Information

These sands are used in glassmaking for foundry, abrasive, and hydraulic fracturing (frac) appliions and for many other industrial uses. The specifiions for each use vary, but silica resources for most uses are abundant. In almost all cases, silica mining uses open pit or dredging mining methods with standard mining equipment.
