Company challenging frac mining ban won’t get Supreme Court chance


A frac mining company in Minnesota lost an attempt this week to have the U.S. Supreme Court hear its argument against a Minnesota county ordinance that banned frac sand for frac purposes in the oil and gas industry.

The high court denied the petition of Minnesota Sands LLC which filed suit in 2017 challenging a Minnesota State Supreme Court ruling that upheld Winona County’s 2016 ban.

Some of the sand had been shipped to major oil and gas producing states.
