July 28, 2021 – Houston, Texas – Select Sands Corp. (the “Company” or “Select Sands”) (TSXV: SNS / OTC: SLSDF) today provides an operations and corporate update. The Company is pleased to report that its Q2 2021 frac and industrial sand sales were 85,242 tons, representing a 42% increase from Q1 2021 sales of 59,970 tons and a 61% increase from Q4 2020.
Separately, Select Sands received confirmation that the Company’s second Payroll Protection Program relief loan of US$574,990 has been forgiven and will be reflected as such in Select Sands’ Q2 financials that are scheduled to be released next month.
The Company has also released an updated investor slide deck posted on the Company’s web site at www.selectsands.com.
Zigurds Vitols, President & Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are delighted to see that our sales volume by tons increased by 42% in Q2 compared to sales in Q1. The steady increase in crude oil pricing and the continued improvement in the U.S. oil and gas sector seen over the past months has supported increased development activity by our customers. We believe that positive trend will continue in the second half of this year resulting in continued demand for our premium Northern White Sands product offering that provides superior quality, including crush characteristics, compared to in-basin frac sand sources. As important, is the strategic location of our mine operations in Arkansas compared to traditional Northern White Sands producers located in the Upper Midwest. The result is that Select Sands can offer its customers a higher quality product offering that can be secured in the lower Mid-West at a much lower landed cost. We look forward to continuing to work closely with our customers to meet their growing needs.”
