President and CEO Dom Kriangkum states, "We are pleased
to see the demand for aggregates in the Fort McMurray region increase during Q3
2014, and anticipate continuing strength during Q4 2014, when demand for
aggregates is traditionally highest during the second half of the year. We have
realized some significant recent success from implementing a number of cost
reduction opportunities in extraction and processing that we targeted in the
first half of 2014. Having received the Firebag Phase One permit approval
presents a great opportunity for the development of our frac sand for use by
Western Canadian pressure pumpers. We await Firebag's Preliminary Economic
Assessment that we expect in Q4 2014, which will further validate the viability
of the project."
