Heartland research fellow Isaac Orr is back for the 7th video installment in the Fracking Facts series, this time from an industrial sand mine in Wisconsin. Sand mines are a necessary component in the hydraulic fracturing (i.e., fracking) process. In states like Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota, the sand mining industry has created thousands of new jobs for hard-working Americans and generated additional income for landowners who have this particular sand on their property. Far from being a health or environmental risk, sand mining is a century-old industry that is used in the production of glass, toothpaste, livestock bedding, and natural gas. Watch the video and learn more about the benefits of frac sand mining!

In Wisconsin, residents are having an emotional debate over fracking. The state is rich in a special kind of sand used in that controversial gas drilling technique, and mining companies are lining up to get to it. That means jobs, and lots of them. But some residents fear the sand mining boom is ruining their farmland -- not to mention their health. Dean Reynolds reports.

FULL verbatim interview @ http://www.WIvoices.org Small business owner, Brenda Tabor-Adams, lives with her husband and 2-year-old son in a silica frac sand mining district between New Auburn and Chetek, WI. They are surrounded by mines. Two separate facilities are within a third of a mile and three more are within one mile of her once-quiet, rural property. In addition, several more mines are proposed or already operating nearby. Brenda's clients now compete with 1,000 sand trucks per day, or 20 trucks every 15 minutes, in order to get their horse trailers in and out of her property. With trucks running for 12 hours/day, 6 days/week, her life has been turned upside down. Dismissed as "collateral damage" by local officials, she fears for the environmental impact, the health of her family and neighbors and the sustainability of her small business. Tabor-Adams also details troubling issues that regular people face when dealing with multimillion dollar mining companies, including lawyers threatening lawsuits, town and county boards "stacked" with pro-sand officials, and the understaffing and underfunding of the Department of Natural Resources tasked to protect the land and the people. Brenda says, "Our government has failed us miserably..."

MN Frac Sand Mining Hearing - full hearing from The UpTake. Like this? Watch the latest episode of The UpTake on Blip! http://blip.tv/the-uptake/watch Here is an UpTake guide to the frac sand hearing held today by a joint meeting of the Minnesota Senate Committee on Environment Energy and the House Committee on Energy Policy. Video replay of the meeting above. Overview The first time that fracking has been on the Legislature?s agenda, today?s hearing is expected to draw busloads of opponents from counties along the Mississippi River Valley in southeastern Minnesota, where silica sand deposits have spurred a sudden growth in industrial sand mining. Alarmed by the transformation of southwestern Wisconsin into a pockmarked landscape of sand pits, Minnesotans began organizing grassroots resistance to industrial scale silica sand mining in 2011, demanding that local governments place a moratorium on new mines and processing. Mining interests have dismissed opponents as ill-informed Nimbys, while touting the jobs sand mining creates when silica sand is extracted, stockpiled, processed, and hauled off to America?s shale oil and gas fields. The particular quality of sand buried beneath the bluffs and fields in the upper Midwest is particularly prized for hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. While that oil-extracting process in states such as North Dakota is controversial in itself, no fracking takes place in Minnesota. Citizen opposition stems from concerns over the health, safety and environmental implications peculiar to sand mining. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton said in December that he expected fracking to be a ?huge? issue during this year?s legislative session and Sen. John Marty (DFL-Roseville), the chairman of the Senate Environment and Energy Committee, said today?s hearing is meant for lawmakers to get a clear idea who has authority over the industry and who?s responsible for looking at the risks. Opponents want a state-imposed moratorium to replace several local moratoriums that expire soon or already have expired. Jim Gurley, a Winona, Minn., activist who has been a leader in the fight against frac sand mining, says a state moratorium is important because the large-scale environmental study opponents are seeking might take more than a year. Without a state moratorium, there will be little to stop the industry from moving ahead once the local roadblocks expire. The Players: Pro and Con At a meeting of the state Environmental Quality Board last September, the line was ?Jobs, jobs, jobs:? Frac sand mining proponents argue that an environmental review isn?t needed, and little has changed in the arguments advanced by the sand mining industry and its friends. Now, as then, silica sand mining advocates argue that they don?t need any additional regulation or supervision as digging up sand is already heavily regulated. New to the discussion are generous estimates of job creation from the Heartland Institute, a conservative anti-environmental think tank based in Chicago, and from the Minnesota Industrial Sand Council (MISC), a new mining lobby of the Aggregate and Ready-Mix Association of Minnesota. Recently, MISC hired Red Wing, Minn., Mayor Dennis Egan as its executive director, a controversial move criticized by mining opponents as inappropriate. Other lobbyists hired by MISC include civil engineer Kirsten Pauly. She spoke in support of the industry at the EQB meeting last fall; in January, KEYC-TV in Mankato, Minn., reported that Pauly presented the results of an environmental assessment worksheet (EAW) for Jordan Sands, which hopes to open a sand processing site in Lime Township near Mankato. Egan and others seek to be able to self-regulate and tout the use of voluntary ?best practices.? In addition to the ethical issues it raised, Egan?s new job bolstered one argument made by grassroots anti-sand activists: That the industry rewards local officials who support mining proposals. Moreover, lucrative ownership and annexation changes such as have been seen in Wisconsin cause mining opponents to warn that local permit protections can melt away suddenly. Health and safety concerns rank highest but aren?t the matters most residents say they worry about. Local property owners worry about the erosion of their property values as the enormous mines destroy working rural landscapes while truck and train traffic rumbles past their homes. Citizens in St. Charles, Minn., the gateway to Whitewater State Park, and small town tourist-mecca Lanesboro, Minn., fret about the impact on the tourism industry while farmers worry about water and soil contamination. Ponds holding silica sand slurry have burst in Wisconsin, contaminating surface water. Other opponents worry about groundwater and wellhead contamination. Citizen opponents are organized in groups such as Save The Bluffs in Goodhue County (Red Wing is the county seat) to the Houston County Protectors.

[Marshfield, Wisc...] As sand mining companies flourish in rural Wisconsin, creating thousands of jobs and pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into those economies, local governments are trying to cash in. Wood County is implementing a road usage fee on the companies, they say is disproportional to their use. The fee amounts to a 5 percent tax on Sand Creek Sand, and the company is now considering expansion plans elsewhere.

They hopped on a tour bus to spread a message. The problem was it wasn't their bus. At about 7:15 a.m. Wednesday, a coach bus pulled into the parking lot at the Earle Brown Heritage Center to take participants of an informational silica sand conference on a tour of sand mines in western Wisconsin. Before riders could get on, seven protesters climbed to the roof of the bus and refused to move. The group was protesting the growth of industrial silica sand mining in Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota. This type of sand is ideal for use in hydrofracking, a technique in which a pressurized mixture of water, sand and chemicals is injected into rock formations to keep cracks open. Natural gas is extracted from those cracks. Activists from southern Minnesota and Iowa said they tried to prevent the tour to highlight environmental and health risks of sand mining. Jake Olzen of Lake City said he has concerns about how groundwater might be affected by runoff from the sediment. He said he also worries about chemicals used in the process. "The silica sand dust, it's a carcinogen that can cause silicosis," said Olzen. "And if you go into towns like Winona, the dust flies off of the trucks that come barreling through. In Winona there are hundreds of trucks a day and it just coats roads and cars." According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's website, health and DNR officials in Minnesota and Wisconsin don't have enough data yet to determine exactly what health risks frac sand mining pose to the public. Researchers at the University of Minnesota-Duluth organized the conference with the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration. They said the conference was designed as an educational event to inform the public about sand mining as Minnesota and Wisconsin experience the rush to expand and develop sand mines for the purpose of hydrofracking. The silica sand mine bus tour was the finale of a three-day informational silica sand conference at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. About 60 protesters gathered in front of the center for the first day of the conference Monday. Brooklyn Center police said they were well-behaved and no one was arrested that day. Police say Wednesday's protesters were cooperative and came down after about an hour. "All they wanted was to get their message out," said Brooklyn Park Police Commander Tim Gannon. 'Then, once a ladder was brought up, we informed them that they would be arrested because of the assembly and also the trespass and they said that was fine and that they would come down willingly. UMD researcher and geology professor Jim Miller said the conference was open to the public and anyone could have attended as long as they paid the registration fee. Conference attendees included engineers and other people on the industry side, as well as people from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, University of Wisconsin-River Falls and Winona State. Miller told 12 News he admires the protesters' passion about the earth. "I'm passionate about the earth, too," said Miller. "But I realize that, as a geologist, I understand how we use the earth for everyday lives."

In the third century BCE, the Ancient Egyptians invented the process of heating silica Sand, soda and lime to create molten glass. By 1500 BCE, this process was utilized for glass vessels and art objects. Weitzman Studios, Inc. ("WSI") uses two main methods: glass blowing and pate de verre. In the pate de verre process, glass granules mixed with a binder are poured into a mold and then fired in an annealer, an insulated box that allows the glass to cool at a controlled rate in the shape of the mold. This cold cast technique allows the mold, which produces the form, to be carefully shaped prior to the glass making process. WSI experiments with the incorporation of copper and bronze into the form during this casting process. Examples of this experimentation include "Fetish" and "Bound Man".

This video shows silica which has arrived by train and is then transported into trucks. The operator of the transport equipment, who avoided being videotaped, had no respiratory protection on. Ridge Road Elementary school is approximately 3,000 feet from this operation. "Releasing [silica] into the air is like releasing asbestos. Silica dust causes lung cancer. It also causes silicosis...which means that jobs in the gas industry are killing jobs.
