Energy resources map of Utah: Map 68

Energy resources include fossils fuels and geothermal energy.

Mineral resources are rocks and minerals that are extracted or “mined” from the earth and used for human’s benefit. Geologic resource maps show where these mineral resources are located; mine-location maps show where the mines are located. The mine-location map shows the status of each mine and to what segment of the minerals industry it is assigned. Accompanying each mine map is a table that contains some basic information about each mine.
