Shabbona Silica Co., Div., Owens-Illinois operated a Wedron mine.

Martin Marietta's Oregon mine was operated by its Manley Sand Co. division.

Some good information in the Directory of Illinois Mineral Producers (July 1971).

It should be noted that CBQ 182544, a covered hopper which suffered a broken journal and caused the TP&W derailment at Crescent City, Illinois on June 21, 1970, was loaded at the Oregon mine.

Ken and List, 

Martin Marietta Corp. operated the Oregon sand mine in the late-CB&Q and early BN eras. It sold the operation to Unimin in 1983.

Ken and others,

 

Just a friendly reminder that the BRHSList is for BRHS topics/business only.  Questions like this are to be posted to the CBQ group.  I have copied this message to that list.

I know this was probably mentioned at one time or another, but what was the name of the big silica sand company in Oregon, Il in the late 60's and into the BN era? 

The sand mine is currently operated by a company named "Unimin".
