Utah collects $69 million in federal minerals funds

Utah received more than $69 million during fiscal 2004 as its share of federal revenues collected by the Department of the Interior's Minerals Management Services.

The federal money is collected from mineral production on federal lands located within the state borders and from federal offshore oil and gas tracts adjacent to their state waters boundary.

More than $1.24 billion was distributed to 36 states during fiscal 2004, and Wyoming topped states with $564 million. The fiscal 2003 payments totaled $1 billion.
