Wayfinder Adds Unit Train Frac Sand Storage And Transloading Facility

Wayfinder Corp. has opened its second unit train frac sand storage and transloading facility in Gold Creek, Alta.

The Gold Creek facility is connected to the Canadian National Railway Company network and is strategically positioned to serve the strong demand for silica sand primarily in the Montney formation.

Gold Creek is located off Highway 40 approximately 50 kilometres south of Grande Prairie. Wayfinder will operate the facility in partnership with Bailly's Transload Ltd. Once completed, it will hold in excess of 45,000 tonnes of sand storage and will have the capacity to hold two unit-trains.

The first unit train is scheduled to arrive on Jan. 19. Gold Creek will complement Wayfinder's initial resin coating and transloading facility in Obed, Alberta and is expected to significantly reduce trucking activity in and around Grande Prairie. The substantial Gold Creek property positions Wayfinder to accommodate future expansion as its client's needs develop.
