The silica sand extraction mining method that CWS is seeking provincial approval for is also a concern—it is an unproven technique in the silica sand mining industry. It entails drilling hundreds of bore holes a year, over the life span of the project, at a depth of approximately 200 feet. Pipes are then inserted into the bore holes and compressed air shot through to create a sand slurry ...
