"US Oil Sands is a growth-oriented energy company focused on environmentally sustainable heavy oil (bitumen) production of oil sands. The Company's initial commercial demonstration project is located in Utah's Uintah and Grand counties where the Company has a 100% interest in bitumen leases covering 32,005 acres (50 square miles) of land, the largest commercial oil sands position in the United States. These leases contain a large resource base in excess of 180 million barrels of discovered petroleum which, when developed, will provide a significant benefit to Utah's economy and help meet U.S. domestic energy requirements."
