Additional Information

Purpose

The Resource Options Report (ROR) data consists of survey level assessments based on: (1) information available at the time of preparation; (2) data supplied by outside sources; and (3) assumptions, conditions and qualifications. The assessment is at a level of detail and accuracy that is only appropriate for long-term resource planning and portfolio analysis, and is not considered sufficiently accurate to establish the characteristics of site-specific resource options for development or acquisition purposes. Use of or reliance on the ROR data by any third party is at that party's sole risk.
