Frac Sand Arkansas
In-Basin Frac Sand Where Our Customers Need Us Most
Frac sand is a specialized material with precise requirements for purity, shape, and size. It needs to be mined, processed, and transported in large amounts from the mine to the drilling site. Thanks to our strategic Arkansas location, Pontotoc Sand & Stone can deliver Tier 1 quality frac sand at an economical price. Logistical costs have been reduced as it no longer needs to be shipped from distant sand mines in states like Wisconsin or Illinois.
Our premier sand supply for fracing and industrial use is located near our customers’ operations. Pontotoc is there when you need us. Check out our resources below:
Silica sand is the key to effective hydraulic fracturing. Proppants are a vital part of our process at Pontotoc, requiring special qualities to maximize gas output. They must be permeable and able to withstand high pressure and tough conditions. Poor quality proppant can lead to reduced yields or slowdowns in mines. Our Arkansas mine at Pontotoc produces three types: 100 mesh, 40/70 mesh, and 40/80 mesh, all guaranteed clean and reliable.
At Pontotoc, we offer crushed limestone in a variety of sizes. Our process first begins at our quarry location in Arkansas.The material is then moved to the plant, broken down, sorted into different sizes for our customers, and stored with conveyor belts according to size. Quality control testing is done on each item before it leaves.
Pontotoc’s industrial sand is a special type of silica, constructed with high purity and strictly processed. Its main component is pure quartz from Permian layers, making it essential for many applications and industries outside oil and gas.

At Pontotoc, we’ve designed an efficient automatic loading process in Arkansas that takes just seven minutes compared to the conventional slow process of several hours. That ensures your supply chain isn’t impacted and reduces costs in the long run.
Each truck is connected to a bill of lading based on its license plate. When the truck arrives, we scan the license plate and view its cargo list. Drivers then head to their designated building for sand loading. With our process, your driver can stay in their seat and let our staff take care of everything. At other plants, drivers must get out, open the truck, and load sand by hand.
Our check station ensures a safe, efficient process for your truckloads of sand. Once full, the driver stops at our office to get the load weighed and approved. Our system keeps them in their truck while they wait, saving time and providing data quickly so they can get back on the road. Pontotoc’s reliable automation makes everything smoother.

Our quick and efficient frac sand truck loading is top-notch, with each load of material meeting industry standards.
