Select Sands Completes Drilling Program at Sandtown Silica Sands Project

Select Sands Corp pleased to announce it has completed a drilling program covering approximately 95% of the Sandtown Silica Sands project.

The current drilling demonstrated uniformity and quality equivalence to the sandstone that was incorporated in the Company's inaugural Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) (See June 10, 2015 News Release). The samples from the current drilling have been submitted for analysis at Stim Lab of Oklahoma, USA. Upon the receipt of the results from the lab, the Company will release an updated resource estimate.

Drilling Highlights

  • Largest intersection returned 131 feet of silica sand
  • Average thickness of the sandstone in the drilling was 56.5 feet
  • Sandstone intersected in 15 holes show consistent quality

A total of 15 of the 20 holes drilled intersected the targeted silica sand zone, while 4 holes to the southwest intersected a gravel/clay zone which is to be used to build haul roads on the property.

"We are pleased to know that rest of the property has similar potential to what has been previously drilled," commented Rasool Mohammad, President and CEO of Select Sands. "The average thickness of 56.5 feet of sand is very similar to our last program, indicating uniformity of the zone."
