Officials with Hi-Crush Partners say they are shifting operations from one frac sand mine to another in western Wisconsin to respond to the market.

  Gas and oil producers are looking for northern white sand these days.  The Hi-Crush mine in Eau Claire County will be shut down, while operations resume at a facility in Whitehall.  Jobs won't be affected because workers at the mine near Augusta will transition to the Whitehall operation.
