Abstract
The report presents a U.S. Bureau of Mines methodology developed to incorporate factors of coal production (mining and cleaning methods, recoveries, economics, etc.) into the definition of recoverability of a coal resource. Project procedures and computer models that were developed to include mine and preparation plant production rates, recoveries, and costs are explained. The results of these procedures and models are reviewed and compared to the Energy Information Administration estimate of U.S. coal resources-the 'demonstrated reserve base.' The Matewan 7-1/2-minute quadrangle in eastern Kentucky was selected to demonstrate the methodology.
