More than half of the total United States' bitumen resource is located in the State of Utah, totaling over 30 billion barrels of oil in place. Utah has both the largest number of oil sands occurrences and the largest individual deposits in the United States. The deposits are primarily located in two areas of Utah: the Uinta Basin of northeastern Utah and central southeastern Utah. Within these areas, there are more than 50 identified oil sands deposits, which contain an estimated total of 20 to 32 billion barrels of oil in place.

mappp US Oil Sands' leases are located within the Uinta Basin, which aside from extensive oil sands deposits, is also well known for its conventional oil and natural gas production. Consequently, oil field services are abundant and available to support US Oil Sands' planned bitumen development and production operations.
