What Is Silica Sand Used For?

Silica has a high melting point, making it an ideal product for use in foundries. An item pressed into the sand leaves an imprint, which the foundry fills with molten metal. Once the cast has hardened, workers lift it from the sand mold and brush away any remaining sand. The relatively small granule size of silica sand is also ideal for filtration.

Respirable Crystalline Silica from Sand Mining

Sand mining operations designed to mine and export 'frac sand' are often much larger in acreage than the smaller, more traditional Wisconsin sand mines that serve mainly local needs for sand. The sand is desirable for fracing and some other uses due to its size, shape, and crystalline silica properties and because the deposits are usually close to the surface and easy to mine.
