Title Fossil resin, a value-added product from western coal
Date 1992
Description Certain bituminous coals of the western United States are known to contain appreciable quantities of macroscopic fossil resin (resinite). Such resinous coals are found in the states of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, etc. The Wasatch Plateau coal field in Utah (Figure 1) has a particularly high content of fossil resin. It has been reported that many seams in this field average as much as 5% resin.
