Perry County sand mine to be 'idled after transaction'


FTS International has announced its sand mine in Brewer will be idled after a pending transaction with Fairmount Minerals.

The company has been in operation for six years.

FTSI released this statement though a spokesperson on Friday afternoon:

"Unfortunately, due to ongoing litigation with surrounding landowners, and potentially lengthy permitting process in Missouri for operations of this type, the FTC International Brewer Sand Mine and Processing Plant near Perryville is scheduled to be idled upon completion of the sales transaction between FTSI and Fairmount Minerals. Until such time, operations at the Brewer Plant will be maintained. The sales transaction is expected to be completed near the end of September."
