Abstract
The United States Bureau of Mines has been exploring the potential application of biological systems to mining. These include anaerobic microbial conversion of coal to methane and the conversion of methane to carbon dioxide. Initial work has identified certain abandoned mines as unique niches where organisms of interest may be found. The characteristics of these mines are being investigated and microbial methanogenic screening assays have been conducted. Initial data suggested methanogenesis was arising from the coal substrate, but further analysis could not confirm that the coal substrate was in fact being depolymerized and converted to methane.
