The detailed map shows locations of lignite with less than 150 feet of overburden and with 150 to 1,000 feet of overburden; subbituminous or bituminous coal with less than 150 feet of overburden and with 150 to 3,000 feet of overburden; bituminous coal with more than 3,000 feet of overburden; anthracite and semianthracite; and areas of past or present coking-coal production. The coal-bearing regions are identified with their estimated original in-place resources to 6,000 feet and estimated remaining in-place resources to 6,000 feet as of January 1977. Additional information indicated on the map includes underground and underground abandoned mines; surface and abandoned surface mines; proposed underground and surface mines; coal mines emitting measurable amounts of methane; coking and coal washing plants; proposed coal gasification plants (surface); proposed in-situ coal gasification projects; proposed methane recovery project; coal-fired electric generating plants; coal-bearing formations; railroads and proposed routes; route of travel of coal unit trains and freight trains that haul coal; coal slurry pipelines (proposed); known coal resource leasing areas.
