A computer tape giving a statistical breakdown of the Nation's coal reserve base is now available. The coal reserve base tape tabulates analyses of approximately 250,000 coal samples by State, county, coalbed, and preparation method (washed, partially washed, or "raw"), as well as by chemical and physical properties including sulfur, ash, and moisture content. According to the Bureau, the Nation's coal reserve base amounts to 437 billion tons. This is the amount that exists in measured and indicated deposits, identified with a high degree of certainty, that generally could be mined economically by conventional underground or surface techniques.
