Coal is Ohio's most important mineral resource, and during the past 175 years over 2.7 billion tons of coal have been mined. This production has come from an approximate 30-county area of eastern Ohio, where both surface and underground mining methods have been employed. This report reviews Ohio's coal production by single counties during the 1800-1974 period, and examines the chemical characteristics of the Ohio coal and its importance to the economy of this state.
