This report presents the geophysical logs for four drill holes drilled during 1981 in the Skumpah Creek area (Acord Lakes quadrangle) and The Pines area (Emery West quadrangle), Sevier County, Utah. Figures 1 and 2 show drill-hole locations, and figures 3-7 are the geophysical logs. The drilling was done by a private drilling company under contract to the U.S. Geological Survey. The sites of all the drill holes are within the Wasatch Plateau Known Recoverable Coal Resource Area (KRCRA). Three of the sites are in the Richfield Ranger District of the Fishlake National Forest and one site is in the Ferron Ranger District of the Manti-LaSal National Forest. The purpose of the drilling was to identify and evaluate coal resources under public lands that may be included in a future coal leasing program.
