SULFUR CONTENT OF UNITED STATES COALS

This report attempts to show the sulfur content of the coal presently produced in the United States and to assess the remaining reserves of the various ranks of coal in each State, according to sulfur content. In most instances, the analyses used were those of cleaned coals. Coals were arbitrarily separated, according to sulfur content, as follows: Low sulfur--1.0 percent or less; medium sulfur--1.1 through 3.0 percent; and high sulfur--3.1 percent or more.
