Abstract
The close relationship observed between sedimentary facies and potential coal mining problems within the Hartshorne Formation of the Arkoma Basin provides the basis for anticipating where mining problems may jeopardize safe and economical coal production in undeveloped parts of the basin. Deltaic facies within the Hartshorne include distributary-channel sandstones and interdistributary-bay shales, siltstones, and sandstones. Interdistributary-bay deposits, because of relative homogeneity and lateral persistence, do not present potential facies-related problems. Basinwide availability of geophysical logs from gas wells makes facies mapping and delineation of potential problem areas a straightforward procedure that must be integrated into formulation of exploration strategy, evaluation of reserves, and mine planning if Hartshorne coal resources are to be safely and economically exploited.
