This paper discusses an EPA sponsored study to assess the potential environmental impacts of leachates from raw mined western oil shales. The study was undertaken as a cooperative effort of the Environmental Protection Agency, Colorado State University, Rio Blanco Oil Shale Company, Cathedral Bluffs Shale Oil Company, and the Oil Shale Project Office of the Bureau of Land Management. This paper presents the results of three years evaluation of the quantity and chemical characterization of leachates generated from onsite field collectors along with laboratory shale tests on raw mined oil shales from the C-a and C-b Federal lease tracts in western Colorado. The findings are indicators of the levels of common and trace species that can be expected to occur in field generated raw shale leachates.
