OF-98-06 Preliminary Evaluation of Mineral and Mineral Fuel Potential of the 130 Tracts of State Trust Land Nominated by the Public for Inclusion in the Stewardship Trust (Round 1)


Includes general summary of geology and mineral potential of 130 tracts of public-nominated land for the State Stewardship Trust throughout Colorado. Includes maps of tract locations, bar graphs indicating resource potential, and topographic map showing location of land nominated to the stewardship trust. Resource categories evaluated include oil and gas, coal, metallic minerals and industrial minerals. Digital ZIP/PDF download. OF-98-06D

The CGS evaluation team suggests that the rankings for each of the mineral commodities on each of the tracts are preliminary and subject to change pending additional research. However, in the majority of cases, additional work would not significantly change the appraisals.
