Date 1905-04-15
Description The great importance of fuels and their utilization to the industrial and domestic progress of cities and nations, has directed the attention of many of our leading scientists, engineers, and forward looking people to newer ways by which our fuel resources can be so utilized to bring many benefits to the general scale and plane of living. Utah is fortunate in having received many years of state and federal cooperative study of her oil shale and coal resources, with respect to their by-products. These studies have proved the reserves of oil in oil shales and coals of Utah to be very extensive, and many times greater than any of the present proved petroleum fields. Recent research and experimental evidences are changing with respect to the order of development of the oil shale and coal reserves. It has been the generally accepted idea that oil shale was a more likely source of oil than coal. Industrial activity, also, has tended more in the development of oil shales than coal for production of oil in the past. But later developments in the manufacture of oil from coal are tending to reverse the situation.
