Publication Date 1975

Abstract The coal reserve base in the Western United States is presented for coalbeds amenable to extraction by underground mining methods. The Federal Bureau of Mines has abstracted data on the quality and quantity of coal resources/reserves from numerous state and federal publications and modified such data as necessary to allow computer storage and retrieval. Tonnages are compiled by state, county, coalbed, and rank, and allotted to sulfur categories by statistical apportionment.
