Environmental Aspects of Coal Mining and Utilization Publications

Most links below are PDF files and can be either downloaded to your computer by right clicking on each link, saving to your computer, and then opening the file in Adobe_Acrobat, or files can be viewed directly in your Web browser. Some PDF files can exceed 25 MB in size (mostly maps and plates); we therefore recommend downloading each file to your computer first. Some publications contain separate plates that need to be downloaded individually.
