'Oil shale work would cause more harm than good' Mon.. April iO. 1»73 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 13 FOKT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) --, A Colorado Stale University study team has concluded that mining of oil shale in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah would cause more environmental damage, than the oil produced would be worth. The team, headed by Dr. C. .Wayne, Cook, chairman of the .department of range sciences .at Colorado Stale University, presented its report to the Materials Commission of the National Academy of Sciences last month. The study team noted that the United Stales obtains more than 75 per cent of ils total energy from oil and natural gas, slightly more than half of it from oil and about 30 per cent of the lolal oil supply is from foreign sources.

Box 604 Scottsbluff, Nebr. 69361 "Extraction of oil from western oil shales has been suggested as a ineans of at least partly reducing dependence o n j foreign supply," the . study j team's report said. But it noted that an oil shale' industry ; would provide only about one million barrels of high quality refinery feed stock per day by 1985, about 5 per cent of current oil demand nr 3 per cent of.projccled demands by 1985. · "ThuSi'over the short term, shale oil probably will not be a major factor in terms of supply," the report continued. "But in terms of environmental impact it could be highly significant." In either surface or deep ·mining, disposal of the .spent shale would 'be an imposing problem, the report said. Pro- uction of one million barrels per day would require handling of about 1.3 million tons of crushed rock per day. Net bulk after crushing and retorting would be about 25 per cent larger than originally, the report said, and returning wastes to the void would leave one-third million tons per day that must be disposited on the surface. "This would require as much as six million gallons of water and from 60, to 150 acres of land per year for permanent storage of spent shale," the report said. The committee recommended that the federal government encourage oil shale development only on a proto type basis with the rate ofi extraction ·compatible with the rate of reclamation of land and the ability of the project to meet environmental standards. The report also recommended that any policy governing oil shale development include the requirement that spent shale be returned to the mind- out void to the maximum extent possible. Infiltrators captured TEL AVIV AP) - Israeli border police Fri. captured three heavily armed Arab guerrillas who crossed into Israel from Lebanon fln "a terrorist mission," a police spokesman said.
