Abstract
This report presents a coal exploration and resource evaluation for the western two-thirds of the warrior coalfield of northwest Alabama and extreme northeastern Mississippi. The report evaluates the stratigraphy, facies characteristics, and depositional history of post "millerella" carboniferous rock units within an 18-county area on the northern rim of the Black Warrior Basin. Generation of data for coal exploration, such as the geographic distribution, thickness, and stratigraphic position of economically exploitable coal seams, represents an important aspect of this research. The principal goals of the study involve (1) formulation of a coal exploration model based on facies analysis that will aid in the search for undiscovered coal reserves, (2) construction of a workable surface and subsurface stratigraphic framework in which to map the terrigenous clastic and coal facies elements, and (3) estimation of the total shallow subsurface and deep basin coal reserves within the study area.
