Abstract
The characteristics of the Kittanning Formation in Indiana and Westmoreland Counties, Pennsylvania, are discussed. Three coalbeds, the Upper (c'), Middle (c), and Lower (b) Kittanning occur in the formation, with only the b coalbed, a low- to medium-volatile bituminous coal, of economic importance. The b coalbed ranges in thickness from 20 to 44 inches, except in proximity to a channel cut, where the thickness ranges from 0 to 72 inches. A sample of the coalbed from a depth of 623 feet indicated small amounts of methane gas are present.
