About US Oil Sands Inc.

US Oil Sands is engaged in the exploration and development of oil sands properties. The Company, through its wholly owned US subsidiary, has a 100% interest in bitumen leases covering 32,005 acres of land in Utah. 

US Oil Sands plans to develop its oil sands properties using its proprietary extraction process.  This process is an efficient and environmentally responsible approach to oil sands development. Using a bio-solvent, US Oil Sands is able to separate bitumen from oil sand without the need for tailings ponds. The process requires low energy input, recycles 95% of the water used and uses best practice mining methods to rapidly reclaim mined areas. US Oil Sands has received a permit to construct the PR Spring Bitumen Mining commercial project on its Utah property and is currently in the final design stage targeting first production in 2013.
