Brilliant Sands President and CEO, Marc J. Andrews, said, "Brilliant Sands is looking forward to working with MJI to quickly and efficiently refine our three projects into a first-class mining operation and begin the production of our exceptional frac sand projects. Our initial field work was initiated last month on all three of our properties and we are pleased to report that our partners are achieving excellent progress in advancing each project. Based on our initial reports, we are expecting a resource report on each project by the third quarter of this year."
Mr. Andrews added, "The location, size, and quality of our projects will position us as one of the leading players in the Canadian frac sand market with the goal of becoming the largest frac sand producer and supplier in Canada.
