Wayfinder Corp. opened it second unit train frac-sand-storage and transloading facility in Gold Creek, Alberta, Canada. The Gold Creek facility is connected to the CN Rail network and is strategically positioned to serve the strong demand for silica sand primarily in the Montney formation.
Gold Creek is located off Hwy 40 approximately 50 km south of Grande Prairie, AB. Wayfinder will operate the facility in partnership with Bailly’s Transload Ltd. Once completed, it will hold in excess of 45,000 tons of sand storage and will have the capacity to hold two unit-trains.
The first unit train arrived on January 19th. Gold Creek will complement Wayfinder’s initial resin coating and transloading facility in Obed, Alberta, Canada, and is expected to significantly reduce trucking activity in and around Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. The substantial Gold Creek property positions Wayfinder to accommodate future expansion as our client’s needs develop.
“Wayfinder is excited to add this location to our expanding infrastructure. The combined experience of Wayfinder and Bailly’s Transload will provide first-class, client focused service,” said Chad Bremner, CEO of Wayfinder.
