A general resource estimate map showing the location of drill core samples and the resultant methane contents in the Castlegate D bed. The samples were collected by the Utah Geological and Mineral Survey independently and as part of a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Energy.
The generalized resource boundary is based upon a four-mile radius of influence. Local sampling experience in the Book Cliffs supports the use of this four-mile radius. With the addition of future methane information, this radius of influence should be recalculated. The designation of a favorable recovery area displays the interpretation of the coal bed methane graph. This area should yield the greatest methane recovery.
