There Is Quality Sand West of Flin Flon

Rainmaker Resources has received analytical results from the initial phase of field testing on the Jayjay and Jayjay East frac sand project in Northeast Saskatchewan approximately 150 kilometers west of Flin Flon.


A total of five composite samples were collected and results show that the sands generally meet industry requirements for use as a proppant sand used in the process of hydraulic fracturing.  The company says given the encouraging results the company plans to start developing a more extensive field testing program using mechanized equipment to fully test the size and extent of the deposits.  It’s anticipated this work program will take place early next summer.


The sand deposit lies at surface and consists entirely of beach sand from the shores of Lake Agassiz that covered much of the central prairies until approximately ten thousand years ago.
