Preliminary mining economics for modified in situ process.

This paper presents some of the high lights of the Phase II study effort conducted under U.S. Bureau of Mines Contract No. S0241073, and documented in the Final Report entitled, "Technical and Economic Study of the Modified In Situ Process for Oil Shale", available through NTIS. A thorough understanding of the economic implications inherent in various factors in the design of a complex facility, as required for modified in situ production of oil shale, will be needed if sound, economical designs are to be achieved. The Phase I effort, consisting of a technical analysis of the process from a mining standpoint, was reported briefly at the 9th Oil Shale Symposium (April 29-30, 1976). This paper highlights the effect of variables in mining and processing of oil shale that have an impact on mine design and, ultimately, upon costs.
