Abstract

The boring campaign carried out during 1950 by the Petroleum Technology section of the Bureau proved the existence over an area of 25 square miles in the Oaklands-Coorabin coalfield of approximately 793,000,000 tons of coal with an average calorific value of 9150 B.Th.U. per 1b. Thickness of the coal intersected in the bores ranged from 18 to 59 feet and depth to the coal from 186 to 565 feet. This report comprises detailed coal analyses, notes on the geological results, and recommendations for future boring.
