IN RESPONSE TO UNPRECEDENTED MARKET DEMAND, ROCK PRODUCTS ANNOUNCES THE LAUNCH OF A NEW FRAC SAND INFORMATION INITIATIVE. ROCK PRODUCTS' NEW INITIATIVE IS DESIGNED TO SUPPLY ITS READERS WITH AN INSIDER'S VIEW OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS CONCERNING FRAC SAND PRODUCTION. Producers of Frac Sand, including aggregates operations, industrial and specialty sand plants, and mobile materials producers now face a critical need for market information and technology solutions. Mining Media International and Rock Products are uniquely positioned to meet the need for market insight and guidance in North America. The U.S. market for Frac Sand is in the midst of a major economic boom with significant growth continuing for the foreseeable future. According to PropTester, Inc. and KELRIK, LLC from the 2011 Proppant Market Report, as reported in the Wall Street Journal, Frac Sand production jumped to 28.7 million metric tons in 2011. The International Energy Agency predicts that more than a half-million new wells will be drilled in the United States by 2035, creating the need for a steady stream of high-quality Frac Sand. U.S. demand for well stimulation materials including proppants is forecast to rise 10.2 percent annually to nearly $12 billion in 2016, according to a study offered by Cleveland-based The Freedonia Group. Rock Products will address the need for Frac Sand information in four specific ways: n Key in this initiative is the launch of Frac Sand Insider���, a new e-newsletter featuring equipment and technology specific to Frac Sand professionals. n Rock Products will increase coverage of the Frac Sand market both in the print edition of the magazine and on its website. n The publication has produced a Frac Sand webinar to bring a unique insight on the industry to producers looking to capitalize on these new opportunities. n Readers are also invited to join the LinkedIn ���Rock Products Frac Sand Equipment & Technology Forum.��� ARE YOU PLANNING TO PROFIT FROM THIS BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY? ROCK PRODUCTS IS YOUR "AGGREGATES ADVANTAGE."
