Victory Nickel Completes Wash Plant Refurbishment


Victory Nickel Inc. announced that it has completed the previously announced refurbishment of its frac sand wash plant at the Seven Persons plant near Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.

The refurbishment of the wet plant compliments the existing 500,000 tpy dry plant at Seven Persons that has been processing Northern White frac sand imported from Wisconsin since early 2014.

“We are pleased to announce that the wash plant project is now complete and the plant is operational,” said Ken Murdock, CEO of Victory Nickel subsidiary Victory Silica Ltd. “Having the wash plant up and running gives us greater flexibility. Not only do we have the ability to immediately wash and sell an additional 20,000 tons of Northern White Wisconsin frac sand that was spilled as a natural outcome of production and requires re-washing, but going forward we will be able to better manage our imported sand inventory and also look to expand our product offerings through the sale of Canadian domestic frac sand as market conditions warrant.”
