The Uinta Basin holds special fascination for economic geologists because of its rich and diverse assemblage of minerals and hydrocarbon resources. Due to their presence in rocks of the basin, much effort has been put into assessing and exploiting uranium, phosphate, gold, copper, coal, and evaporite minerals. However, the basin is probably best noted for its extensive and very rich accumulations of hydrocarbons such as oil, gas, bituminous sandstones, oil shale (shale oil), and gilsonite and other solid and semi-solid hydrocarbon species. More importantly, several of these commodities have proven to be a major source of wealth and resources for both local communities and the nation. This publication contains papers discussing the resources of the Uinta Basin. Those papers are listed below:
