About The Product

Published through the yankee Geophysical Union as a part of the Field journey Guidebooks Series.

The San Juan Basin of northwest New Mexico and south-west Colorado comprises large assets of subbituminous to bituminous coal, approximately half the U.S. uranium assets, the second one greatest natural-gas box within the conterminous usa, and several other huge oil fields. The uranium is focused in continental rocks of the higher Jurassic Morrison Formation in fundamental tabular and redistributed roll-type ore deposits. The coal and many of the oil and gasoline assets happen in transgressive-regressive rocks deposited in past due Cretaceous time at the southwestern fringe of the Western inside Seaway, mostly within the Dakota Sandstone, Mancos Shale, Mesaverde crew, Pictured Cliffs Sandstone, and Fruitland Formation. The journey will learn intimately some of the facies of the energy-producing Mesozoic rocks, that are good uncovered during this arid and lovely a part of the Colorado Plateau. excursions of mines will contain the Navajo coal strip mine west of Farmington, New Mexico, one of many greatest coal mines within the united states; the Lee Ranch coal strip mine, north of San Mateo, generating subbituminous coal from the Menefee Formation; and the Mt. Taylor underground uranium mine north of provides, New Mexico, generating ore from the most important fundamental ore deposit within the sector.

Its composition correlates with that of bitumen from the marine Mancos Shale. API gravity of Mesaverde oil ranges from 37" to 50". Pictured Cliffs Sandstone Hydrocarbon production from the regressive marine Upper Cretaceous Pictured Cliffs Sandstone has been primarily gas from stratigraphic traps in sandstone beds enclosed in shale or coal at the top of the unit. Stillstands or brief reversals in the regression of the Cretaceous sea to the northeast produced thicker shoreline sandstones, which have been the most productive.
