Geology and Coal Resources of the Salyersville North Quadrangle, Magoffin, Morgan, and Johnson Counties, Kentucky

Description: From introduction: The U.S. Geological Survey has conducted investigations of the geology and coal resources of the area in and adjacent to the Salyers-ville North quadrangle in the Eastern Kentucky coal field (fig. 7). The Salyersville North quadrangle lies between lat. 3745' and 37052'30'' N., and long. 8300' and 83 07'30'' E.; it is a 71/2-minute quadrangle in the southeast quarter of the Dingus 15-minute area which also includes the Dingus, Lenox, and White Oak 7 -minute quadrangles (fig. 8). The present report is the second for the 15-minute Dingus area; a report by Adkison (1957) has been published for the White Oak quadrangle and a third report is in preparation for the Lenox quadrangle. Other published reports for quadrangles in the vicinity are those by Englund (1955) for Cannel City to the west; Bergin (1962) for Seitz to the southwest; and Hauser (1953) for Paintsville to the east.

The Ashland Coal Field, Rosebud, Powder River, and Custer Counties, Montana

Description: From introduction: The detailed information concerning the coal deposits of the Ashland field set forth in this report has been obtained in the course of an investigation that has been conducted both as a part of the United States Geological Survey's general systematic study of western coal lands and as an aid in the administration of the public lands. With the information obtained on the location of outcrops, the number, distribution, and thickness of coal beds, the accessibility of the coal, and the thickness of the overburden, the public lands of the region are classified as to their coal value; coal-bearing lands are differentiated from noncoal-bearing lands; and the administration of the coal-land leasing law is facilitated.

Coal Deposits of the Santa Clara District Near Tonichi, Sonora, Mexico

Description: From abstract: The Santa Clara coal district is 7 to 10 kilometers west of Tonichi, a small town on the Rio Yaqui, in southeastern Sonora, Mexico. Tonichi was the terminus of a branch railroad from Corral until May 1945, when the end of the line was removed. The coal deposits were developed by the Southern Pacific Railroad from the 1890's until about 1911, when the mines were abandoned, partly because the coal was found unsuitable for use in locomotives. Other coal deposits, near Los Bronces and San Javier, west of the Santa Clara district, were mined for a number of years to provide coal for a silver smelter at San Javier which was abandoned sometime during the 1920's. Since 1942 the Santa Clara deposits have been reopened; through 1945 about 50,000 tons of coal had been shipped, at first to the Boleo copper smelter at Santa Rosalia, Baja California, and more recently to Guadalajara, Jalisco, for the manufacture of calcium carbide.
