Abstract
Economic investigations indicate that bituminous coal can be mined underground in the uinta region and marketed at a cost competitive with that of other energy sources in the west. A selling price of $3.90 Per ton of coal was calculated from a cost analysis of a projected coal mine in the emery coalfield of Utah. Although some mines in some of the coalfields have extremely difficult mining conditions and cannot compete in the energy market at this price level, at least two other coalfields in the uinta region contain coal reserves that could be mined and sold at a price of approximately $3.90 Per ton. Projections by power companies and other coal-consuming industries indicate a strong future market for the large coal reserves in the uinta region. (Out of print.)
