This two-volume report describes the feasibility of mining the oil shale deposits of the Piceance Creek Basin in Colorado by an integrated open pit system. The study is based upon a comprehensive analysis of pertinent environmental, economic, and engineering factors. Ten mining cases are investigated, and the mine design and cost estimates for each case are presented. Part 1 of Volume II is a detailed explanation of the estimating methods used, and part 2 is a more detailed discussion of the technical and cost features of the 10 cases than that presented in volume 1.
