Progress continues on our Unit Train Expansion project and our new Aggregate Crushing facility. So does the excitement. We commissioned the Aggregates Crushing line back in the fourth quarter of 2016 and have made gradual improvements of this facility as shown above. It is amazing to think that just a few short months ago that this was just an open quarry waiting to be reclaimed. Now, thanks to the aggressive growth goals that we at Pattison Sand Company strive for, we are able to utilize this area for our expansion needs. This will create more good jobs, provide better job stability and a boost the local economy.
To date we have installed approximately 3,500’ of rail road track from the main switch. We have started separating the rail lines to accommodate different needs. Now it is really starting to take shape. We also have started the construction of our in house containment settling ponds and water processing feed pond for the new Aggregate Crushing facility. These settling ponds and the process feed pond will ensure that the Pattison Sand company will be able to recycle most of the water being utilized at the new Aggregate Crushing facility. This will be similar to our recycling efforts in our sand processing facilities. Don’t forget to check back every few weeks or so to continue to see our construction and progress as it continues to take shape. As always, please visit our “Unit train Expansion” page for the full scope of the project. We hope you are as excited as the Pattison Sand Team members are about this growth and the boost it will provide to our local area.
