SSS/EMES acquired the San Antonio, TX mine and dry plant operation on April 12, 2017. This acquisition comes with a unique history, where mining for concrete roads and bridges began by Mr. Dave Lehr prior to 1900, and transportation at that time was primarily by horse and wagon! A rail line, SAU&G, was introduced in 1912, and the location was purchased by the Osburn family, sometime later, upon Mr. Lehr’s death. The plant changed ownership again in 1959 when the Tooke family purchased the plant and property, and they continued to mine for industrial, construction and sports sands, delivering to domestic and export markets until SSS’ acquisition.

The San Antonio plant has a production capacity for 600,000 TPY of wet sand and 300,000 TPY of finished dry sand. SSS is undergoing an upgrade plan at this site that will eventually include a full scale 3MM TPY dry plant, with expected completion in mid-2018. Upon completion of this new dry plant, the San Antonio operation will have a total frac sand capacity of 3.7MM tons per year of 40/70, 100m and 40/140 mesh products. In addition, this site will continue to product sand for the construction, foundry and sports markets.

Our San Antonio Plant has over 80MM tons of sand reserves consisting mostly of API spec’d 40/70 and 100m. Located near the heart of the Eagle Ford basin, this site offers direct trucking to the wellsite, as well as low-cost transportation into the Permian Basin via the Union Pacific Rail mainline.
