Mining & Natural Resource Development

 

Mineral Resources
Mineral production in Utah totaled $1.77 billion in 2002, and $420 million of that was coal. Base metals account for $612 million and industrial minerals and precious metals for $565 million and $172 million, respectively.
 

Natural Resources
Emery County produced 6% of Utah's natural gas in 2003. Ferron's Coalbed Methane Fairway has 3 fields and 452 wells and has produced 0.2 tcf (trillion cubic feet) of gas. Ferron Sandstone is studied nationwide because of the abundance of coalbed methane found in it. In addition, Emery County has cummulatively produced 681,250 bbl (barrels) of oil, 113,239,729 mcf (million cubic feet) of gas, and 37,427,896 bbl (barrels) of water. Recently, in the Temple Mountain District of Emery County, a new mineral named Orthominasragrite [V4+O(SO4)(H2O)5] was discovered.
