VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – Feb. 19, 2015 – Select Sands Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SNS) is pleased to announce the results of drill hole ST14-02 (0-32 feet). Stim-Lab analysed two grades of 40/70 mesh and 100 mesh. The Sieve Analysis of Submitted Proppant Samples is as follows: 5.1 % as 20/40, 15.1 % as 30/50, 32.7% as 40/70 and 56.6 % as 100 mesh. Measurement of Properties of Proppants are following: Sphericity =0.8, Roundness =0.8, acid solubility 0.7%, turbidity 11NTU. The “Proppant Crush-Resistance Test” (K-Value) of 40/70 crush at 10,000 PSI generating 9.9 % fines equating to 10K for 40/70 mesh; 70/140 (100 mesh) crush at 10,000 PSI generated 9.4% fines resulting in 10K crush for 100 mesh as well. XRD results indicate 99% quartz, trace of K-feldspar, trace Calcite, < 1% clays and < 1% Illite. The bulk density is 1.47 g/cm3.
The Stim-Lab results are posted on the company’s website: http://www.selectsandscorp.com/
Proppant properties are defined as per the ISO 13503-2:2006/API RP 19C recommended practice for measurement of properties of proppants used in hydraulic fracturing and gravel-packing operations. These properties include sand sphericity and roundness, crush (K value), acid solubility, turbidity, and SiO2 (silicon dioxide) content.
“These results meet or exceed the Tier 1 proppant (frac sand) specifications” stated Rasool Mohammad “The Company will continue to develop this project further”.
The Company is pleased to announce the start of an infill drill program to delineate resources. There are about 13 drill holes planned in the phase 2 drill programs. Phase 1 drilling is complete and the results are very favorable to take the next step of the infill drill program. The phase 2 in-fill drill program is anticipated to start February 20th, 2015.
