VANCOUVER, B.C., Oct. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Select Sands Corp. ("Select Sands" or the "Company") (TSXV: SNS | OTCQX: SLSDF) announced today that it has placed 26 employees at its Arkansas operations on temporary furlough until further notice. This necessary step results from the current industry-wide market disruption, which has impacted demand for Select Sands' Northern White frac sand. Shipments and limited production continue, while the Company continues to pursue additional opportunities.
Zig Vitols, President and CEO, states, “The recent disruption in the industry has required us to take these necessary steps to manage our business successfully while minimizing the impact to resume improvements when frac sand demand strengthens. We have been proud employers of a qualified workforce in our area and look forward to bringing our full team back on board as soon as possible.”
