Successful Competitive Lease Sales Since 1990, Utah

BLM Utah maintains records of coal lease sales during the year.  This table provides information about lease sales based on the Lease by Application (LBA) serial number, which is used to identify  and track applications.  Sometimes, the applicant is not the same as the final lessee because during the bidding process, someone may submit a larger bid than the applicant.

Data in this table may not add up to the state-specific totals listed on the BLM's national coal page because the national table includes information, such as lease modifications and relinquishments not included here.

Definitions used in this table

Lease by Application (LBA) Serial Number:  A unique application identifier assigned by the BLM for processing the application.  Under an LBA, an application from the public to lease a particular tract of coal is submitted.

Applicant:  The applicant is the person, association, or corporation requesting the right to mine Federal coal through an LBA.  Applicants pay for BLM processing and work with the BLM through the application process.  Applicants shall meet the qualifications required in 43 CFR 3472.  Note that the applicant is not necessarily the lessee, who is the successful bidder.

Lessee (as issued):  The successful bidder for a lease who has entered into a contract with the BLM to develop Federal coal.  The successful bidder is determined by the highest bid that meets or exceeds the pre-sale Fair Market Value estimate, and has been determined to be qualified under 43 CFR 3472 to hold a lease.

Acres Offered (per sale notice):  The acres offered is the number published in the Federal Register lease sale notice or in the detailed statement of the terms and conditions of the lease provided prior to the sale.

Tons Offered (per sale notice):  The tons offered is the quantity of coal listed normally as recoverable reserve (sometimes provided as minable reserves) published in the Federal Register lease notice or in the detailed statement of the terms and conditions of the lease provided prior to the sale.  See 43 CFR 3480.0-5 for definitions of recoverable coal reserves and minable reserve base.

Successful Bid:  The amount of the bonus bid offered for a lease tract for the purpose of obtaining the right to explore and develop Federal coal.      

Effective Date:  The date the coal lease becomes effective. A lease normally becomes effective the first day of the month following the lease signature.
