Reading: Coal

As coal contains mainly carbon, the conversion of dead vegetation into coal is called carbonization. The wide, shallow seas of the Carboniferous Period provided ideal conditions for coal formation, although coal is known from most geological periods. The exception is the coal gap in the Permian–Triassic extinction event, where coal is rare.

Coal Combustion Byproducts, Kentucky Geological Survey

Coal Combustion Byproducts. Fly ash is the fine particulate (including ash, dust, soot, and cinders) material produced from coal combustion. It consists of the mineral matter in the coal which did not combust in the furnace, and did not settle to the bottom of the boiler as bottom slag or bottom ash.

What are the types of coal?

Rank refers to steps in a slow, natural process called "coalification," during which buried plant matter changes into an ever denser, drier, more carbon rich, and harder material. The four ranks are: Anthracite: The highest rank of coal. It is a hard, brittle, and black lustrous coal, often referred to as hard coal,

Coal Geology

Coal is mined by both surface or 'opencut' (or opencast) and underground or 'deep' mining methods, depending on the local geology of the deposit. Underground mining currently accounts for about 60 per cent of world coal production but around 80 per cent of Australia's coal is produced from opencut mines.
