      (53 percent) are mineable. Most known coal reserves are in Wyoming, followed by West Virginia, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. Wisconsin has no known coal deposits. (See U.S. Coal Deposits). Based on U.S. coal production in at million short tons, the U.S. estimated recoverable coal reserves would last about years. Besides the minable coal reserve, the vast deep-seated deposits of coal contain another source of energy; CBM. It is almost like natural gas with a slightly lower (10 15%) calorific value. Reserve estimates of CBM in coal ranges from to 33, TCF (78 Tm3) [5,6] as shown in Table Fig. shows the major coal basins around the.

      Mineral resource classification is the classification of mineral resources based on an increasing level of geological knowledge and confidence. In an effort to achieve a standard set the classifications, representative bodies from Australia, Canada, South Africa, the USA and the UK reached a provisional agreement in on the definitions of each of the various mineral classifications.

      technology so that coal reserves are not left in the ground where they can deteriorate and not later be retrieved. Underground mining methods usually leave a significant portion of the coal reserve in the ground, Some under-ground mines recover only30 to 50 percent of the minable resource, although, averaged over all underground mines in the United. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in collaboration with State geological surveys, has been involved in the estimation of minable coal resources and categorizing them according to the estimated cost of mining and cleaning the coal.

RESERVES AND RESOURCES OF SURFACE-MINABLE COAL IN ILLINOIS 1 INTRODUCTION The amount of lllinois coal Minable coal reserves of Illinois book is potentially recoverable by surface mining (also called strip mining) was first esti- mated by Culver () to be 1, million tons.

In Illinois, deep-minable coal resources are distributed over 67 counties. Resources with a high potential for development are concentrated in the west-central, south- western, and southern parts of the coal field, and resources with a moderate or low potential are concentrated in the.

Coal resource maps on this page include structural elevation, depth, thickness, sulfur, and chlorine of major, potentially minable coal seams in Illinois. These include the Colchester, Danville, Davis, Dekoven, Herrin, Jamestown, Seelyville, and Springfield Coals. The maps presented here are page-sized ( × 11 inches) maps available as PDF.

only states which have solid fuel reserves larger than Illinois, but their reserves are nearly all subbituminous coal and lignite. The Illinois total compiled in an.

Coal has been mined in 76 counties of Illinois. More than 7, coal mines have operated since commercial mining began in Illinois about ; fewer than 30 are currently active. To detail the extent and location of coal mining in Illinois, the Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) has compiled maps and directories of known coal mines.

Illinois Basin coal miner Foresight Energy LP slashed estimates of proven and probable coal reserves by around one-third over the previous year when it released estimates. Combined, proven and probable reserves are a measure of coal in the ground that can be economically and legally extracted.

InIllinois ranked ninth nation-wide in coal production, and the state’s annual total coal production was about 32 million tons (). Illinois is first in the nation for reserves of bituminous coal, the country’s most widely used coal rank (Illinois Depart-ment of Mines and MineralsIlli-nois Coal Association ).

Reserves are estimated to be in the range of several trillion tons (Landis, this volume). Thus coal potentially represents a much larger energy resource than that estimated for crude oil and natural gas.

In addition to minable reserves, coal has been and is being studied as a source of hydrocarbons, in particular natural gas. Surface mining accounts for nearly 50 percent of recent coal production in Illinois.

In previous publications, the Illinois State Geological Survey reported that over 20 billion tons of coal in Illinois were potentially strippable; however, current economic and environmental issues associated with surface mining have created a need for estimates of the amount of strippable coal that can be.
