Abstract
The Bureau of Mines conducted a continuing program of environmental analysis for its oil shale mining environmental research program centered around the 8-foot-diameter bored shaft in Horse Draw in the central part of the Piceance Creek Basin, Colorado. The purpose is to determine potential adverse effects of the research program on the environment before they become reality so that any necessary monitoring can be started and mitigating measures developed. This paper describes the existing environment of the Bureau's oil shale research tract and summarizes the development of the facility up to the present with emphasis on the environmental analysis that was conducted coincident with development. The Bureau concluded from its assessment that the potential benefits resulting from a proposed program of mining environmental research conducted more than offset the relatively minor negative environmental impacts that would result from the program. Significant findings of the program are presented.
