MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR



"The mining of coal, minerals, oil and natural gas production play an important part in Utah's economy, and without these natural resources we would not enjoy the standard of living we do in our modern society. The Division of Oil, Gas and Mining ensures our access to these natural resources in an environmentally responsible manner, while our Abandoned Mine Program works to protect the public from the dangers of unregulated past mining practices. Our employees really do make it happen."

John R. Baza
Director, Utah Division of Oil, Gas and Mining
