Results of this study indicate that of the original 1, M tons of coal resources in the Kentucky portion of the Matewan /2 minute quadrangle, M tons have been mined out and another M tons are restricted from mining for a variety of reasons, resulting in a minable resource of M tons.

Bureau of Mines.;]. The Matewan /2 minute quadrangle in eastern Kentucky was selected as the initial study area. Results indicate that of the original 1, million tons of resource in the quadrangle, only 89 million tons (%) are economically recoverable at a cost of $25 per ton or less.

Inthe USGS and the Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS) began a Coal Availability study (15) of an area within the central Appalachian coal region-the Matewan /2-minute quadrangle-in order to determine the resources available for mining after environmental.

World Fossil-Fuels Production Simulated Temperature Rises C of the rise is associated with future US coal production, and this could be reduced by carbon-dioxide capture and burial Results The projection for remaining world coal production is only half of the reserves Less minable coal is good news for climate change We need to keep up the.

Coal accounts for a major portion of our Nation's energy supply in projections for the future. A demonstrated reserve base of more than billion short tons, as the Department of Energy currently estimates, indicates that, on the basis of today's rate of consumption, the United States has enough coal to meet projected energy needs for almost years.
