High Crush Sand Mine Near Augusta Wisconsin

The area is heavily populated by Amish family farmers

We could smell and taste the dust from the mining activity and the dust was everywhere on building roofs as we drove through the countryside

The sand dust is heavy in minute particles of silica, a glass like particle.  We are glad we don't live in Augusta any more.  Silica shards gets into ones lungs and never comes out. The mine is less than two miles from town
