1 P. R. spring oil-impregnated sandstone deposit Uintah and Grand Counties, UtahOil-impregnated sandstone beds underlie at least 214 square miles in the southeastern Uinta Basin and may extend northward beneath cover. One to as many as five principal saturated zones, 3 to 75 feet thick, occur in a 250-foot interval that dips gently northward.
