Abstract

In Australia, coal seams occur in stratified rocks of Permo-Carboniferous, Triassic, Jurassic and Tertiary systems. Black coal occurs in the rocks of the first three systems, and brown coal in the Tertiary. In the Northern Territory, Permo-Carboniferous, Jurassic and Tertiary rocks are present. Coal has been found in the Northern Territory, but none of the occurrences are of commercial importance. The occurrence of coal in the Port Keats - Cliff Head, North and East Coast, and Hale River districts is discussed in this report.
