About this site

The Frac Sand Frisbee is a blog about frac sand mining in Buffalo County (located 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 turned into Alaska and things moved really fast there for a while.

This has been a place for people (mostly me, Mike 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.  The tempest has died back, so this site is getting dusty.  That’s fine with me.
