The significant bituminous sandstone and bituminous Limestone deposits of Utah are located within, or on the edges of, the Uinta Basin.

Utah book are all located within the boundaries of Carbon, Duchesne, and Uintah Counties. The deposits are located mainly in two areas of Utah: the Uinta Basin of northeastern Utah, and central southeastern Utah. Oil sands or tar sands (also called oil-impregnated sandstones and bituminous sandstones) are, as the names imply, sandstones that are saturated or filled with black, heavy hydrocarbons or bitumen.

Tar sands, also variously called oil sands or bituminous sands, are loose-to-consolidated sandstone or a porous carbonate rock, impregnated with bitumen, a high boiling asphaltic material with an extremely high viscosity that is immobile under reservoir conditions and vastly different from conventional crude oil (Meyer and Attanasi, ; Speight,Speight, a,b, a).

The proposed mining area straddles the Grand and Uintah County line. Phase 1 of the project encompasses 6, acres and construction is slated to begin this summer. Production is expected to begin in with a projection to produce 2, barrels of tar sands crude per day.

Gilsonite is mined within the quadrangle with the largest operation near Bonanza, Utah. Tar sand deposits are also mined in the quadrangle at Asphalt Ridge; additional tar sand deposits are located elsewhere along Asphalt Ridge, but they may not be developed because of poor quality or land ownership issues.
