In this section we summarize gas and water production from Fruitland coal beds, and on the basis of the relations between production, geologic setting, and hydrodynamics, we divide the San Juan Basin into regions in which Fruitland coal beds have similar reservoir characteristics.

Because of the hazardous nature of pit storage materials and the potential for contamination, the Gold Book recommends operator’s use a closed-loop pit system or line open pits with an impermeable liner. BLM Gold Book Onshore Order #1 Reclamation and Abandonment. New Mexico BLM Restoration Page. Utah BLM Planning Page. San Juan Basin. The San Juan Basin is highly recognized for its economic energy resources. The most prominent economic resources within the San Juan Basin include coalbed methane, coal, and conventional oil and gas (S.S. Papadopoulos ). The San Juan Basin is one of the most productive coalbed methane basins in North America.

The Morrison Formation is the youngest Jurassic formation in the San Juan Basin. Only the top of the Brushy Basin Member is shown on the cross sections (Figures 2, 3). The Brushy Basin is a nonmarine unit consisting of fluvial sandstones and overbank and lacustrine tuffaceous mudstones (Bell, ; Turner and Fishman, ).

There is a wide range of earth materials, from clay to rock. All these materials can be used for reclamation. However, depending upon the type of material. describe one environmental impact that sulfur content of the remaining coal and the tailings would have on the reclamation process and suggest a possible remedy.
sulfur in coal and tailings may dissolve in water that percolates through them to form sulfuric acid which results in reduced plant growth/animal distribution. New Mexico Geological Society Guidebook, 61COAL MINING IN THE WESTERN SAN JUAN BASINst Field Conference, Four Corners Country,p.

The materials that eroded from the San Juan Mountains flowed into a large outwash that became known as the Blanco Basin formation. During the Miocene Age, 5 to 24 million years ago, large amounts of volcanic rock were extruded over this region.
Chapter Q Geology and Coal Resources of the Upper Cretaceous Fruitland Formation, San Juan Basin, New Mexico and Colorado By James E. Fassett1. Bauer and Reeside () have mapped the Fruitland Formation within the quadrangle with emphasis on outcrops of Fruitland coal beds and clinker.

To illustrate the significant vertical and lateral changes in coal density, Mavor and Nelson () used the basal Fruitland Formation coalbed reservoirs at three well locations in the San Juan Basin as examples for this density variation.
As shown below, these examples list the variations in ash content, gas content, and average density. The burning coal seam at the NCF is a thick (~ 8 m) and continuous layer, part of the Fruitland Formation.
It is located along the Hogback Monocline of the natural gas bearing San Juan Basin. The strike of the seam is about 25° NE, and the approximate dip is 12° to the SE (Ide et al., ). It is overlain by an average of 15 m of overburden Cited by: part of the San Juan Basin in northwest New Mexico.
The area was selected by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to be included in the EMRIA (Energy Minerals Rehabilitation Inventory and Analysis) program in order to evaluate reclamation potential of sediments from the Fruitland Formation in this part i of the basin.
oCited by: 2. This chapter reviews the basic geologic characteristics of North American coalbed methane reservoirs and is intended to facilitate understanding of how key geologic variables interrelate.
Reservoirs are considered in terms of stratigraphy, sedimentation, geologic structure, basin hydrology, geothermics, coal quality, and gas by: 4. Figure 5 Thin layers of dark gray or black material in the overburden should be sampled and analyzed separately to determine their acid‐producing potential.
