Microwaving rock in northwest Colorado could turn the oil shale business inside out, said a Grand Junction inventor who is working to restart oil shale at a time when many are pulling away from it.
Using equipment small enough to be loaded onto two trucks traversing the surface could result in minimal surface disturbance, said Peter Kearl, a Grand Valley native who heads Qmast LLC, www.qmast.com, the company pursuing the project.
Not only would his technology disturb little of the surface, it also would likely produce — rather than use — water, Kearl said.
A man who fired shots at police during a 2011 standoff at a Clifton home, after botched attempts at stealing cars at a nearby gas station, faces potentially hundreds of years in prison after guilty verdicts were returned by a Mesa County jury. George Roloff, 37, was convicted Wednesday on 37 charges, including menacing, first-degree assault on a peace officer, attempted aggravated robbery, among others, after a trial before District Judge Richard Gurley that started April 15.
