    Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) Illinois Minerals - Illinois State Geological Survey The series, published between and , was originally designed as a series of newsletters and other items that were of interest to those involved in the minerals industry of Illinois. For example, the relatively well-known No. 6 coal, which is strip-mined along its outcrop in southern Illinois, lies at depths exceeding 1, feet in parts of Jasper County. The area and general structure of coal-bearing strata in Illinois are shown on the Illinois Geological Survey Geologic Map of Illinois (Weller and others, ).

The first of three field trips conducted by the Illinois State Geological Survey will be held Saturday, according to George M. Wilson, head of the Surveys Educational Extension service. The trip will be conducted in the Lawrenceville area in the Little Wabash River Valley and adjacent to the wide flats of the Wabash River, once a broad Author: Donna Burton.

The County’s mining industry dates back to when the first commercial coal mine shaft was put into commission, providing a cheap and efficient source of power for the region.

1 Locally mined coal and aggregates were responsible for the establishment and growth of many communities. Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock, formed as rock strata called coal is mostly carbon with variable amounts of other elements; chiefly hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and nitrogen.

Coal is formed when dead plant matter decays into peat and is converted into coal by the heat and pressure of deep burial over millions of y: carbon. The COALPROD database contains coal production information, in short tons, for the major producing states within the conterminous U.S.

(exclusive of Alaska), by major coal producing regions. These regions include the Appalachian basin, Eastern Interior basin (Illinois basin), Gulf Coast region, the Rocky Mountain region, and the Northern Great Plains region(See table below).
