Abstract

This report has been written as the result of conversations between the writers and officers of the Joint Coal Board in Sydney, Lithgow and Cessnock, and with similar assistance from the Geological Survey of New South Wales. The writers visited the Western and Northern coalfields during August and inspected most of the operating open-cuts. The results of the enquiries are presented in five tables which are set out at the end of this report and which contain, in statistical form, the greater part of all the information elicited. The text matter of the report is explanatory of the tables and also discusses the methods which have been used in arriving at the estimates of coal reserves. In the ensuing discussion emphasis has been laid on coal reserves available for open-cut mining, and all enquiries directed to the Join Coal Board were concerned with open-cut coal only.
