A resource of about 2460 million tons of low-sulfur, low-mercury, bituminous coal is available for underground mining in the southern half of the Wasatch Plateau, Utah. This available coal resource is in beds that are more than 4 feet thick within the Cretaceous Blackhawk Formation, and excludes coal within the complexly faulted Joes Valley graben as well as coal made unavailable because of past mining (as of December 2000), technical limitations, or land-use restrictions. About half of the available coal is classified as a demonstrated resource (within 0.75 miles of a measurement location). Our data show that seven of the eleven coal beds identified in this study contain available coal; nearly 90% of this coal is in two of these beds, namely, the Acord Lakes coal bed and the Knight coal bed. We estimate that 670 million tons of the available coal resource can be recovered; this is sufficient to sustain current production from this area for more than 90 years.
