About This Publication
Coal is found in six areas in Texas, including the large North-Central Texas field, a distinctive cannel coalfield in Webb County, and Late Cretaceous-age coals near Eagle Pass. Throughout the state coal occurs in thin beds (rarely more than 3 ft thick) under overburden of varying thickness and degrees of consolidation and is generally high-volatile C bituminous coal. This handbook compiles the history of bituminous coal production, discusses the geologic setting, characteristics, and quality of the coal, lists all known chemical analyses, and briefly considers the potential for developing Texas bituminous coal into a contributing energy resource.
