WaySand is a high-quality regional frac sand, produced by Wayfinder Corp at its facility 1.5 hours northwest of Edmonton.

When completed in May 2019, the processing plant will be producing 50/140 (100 mesh) and 40/70 mesh frac sand. Both grades will be available at Wayfinder’s coating facility east of Hinton, its facility at Gold Creek and regional sand pit. The 3 high-speed transload facilities provide the closest access to the Deep Basin, Duvernay and Montney.

WaySand is a cost-effective alternative to Tier 1 frac sand, which meets API / ISO specifications. Most importantly the sand is available at any time, overcoming issues with rail transportation and Tier 1 shortages.
