From August 18-21, 1962, a reconnaissance was made of coalbeds on Sitkinak Island, Alaska. The examination was made at the request of one of the leasees who furnished information as to the area of the best coal outcrops. A number of thin-bedded coal outcrops were observed. Some of the coal outcrops were examined in detail and their locations recorded; others were given only the cursory examination necessary to determine their total coal thickness. One of the better outcrops, having a total coal thickness of 1.9 Feet, was sampled for analyses.
