Crown Energy Corp., 215 S. State, will break ground at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 19, for its $19 million oil sands extraction facility near Vernal. This is Utah's first project to utilize the state's extensive oil sand reserves on a significant commercial level.

Employing 30 people when completed, the Crown Asphalt Ridge Project is expected to make a significant contribution to the area economy, said Jay Mealey, Crown president.
