EFFECT OF COAL PREPARATION ON NORTHERN APPALACHIAN RESERVES

The Bureau of Mines has published reports detailing the extent of coal reserves of the United States by state, county, coalbed, rank, and sulfur content. In addition, other Bureau of Mines studies have delineated the sulfur release potential of coals from principal utility-coal-producing coalbeds of the United States. An effort to determine how the present reserves of the Northern Appalachian region would be distributed by sulfur content if they were subjected to various levels of coal preparation is reported in this paper. This study was applied to the bituminous coal reserves of the Northern Appalachian region because many of the coals of this area are amenable to upgrading by physical beneficiation. Included in this region are Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and 40 northern counties of West Virginia.
