Nelson, W.J., and Bauer, R Cited by: 1. A coal ball is a type of concretion, varying in shape from an imperfect sphere to a flat-lying, irregular slab. Coal balls were formed in Carboniferous Period swamps and mires, when peat was prevented from being turned into coal by the high amount of calcite surrounding the peat; .

      Cyclic laminations in gray shales are noted above many major coal seams in the Illinois Basin. These features, which are termed “tidal rhythmites,” indicate significant tidal influence during deposition of the roof strata. Many existing models, however, suggest fluvial dominance and crevasse splay deposition for such gray shales. This article describes the geology of the ceremonial county of includes the boroughs of Darlington, Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees but not those former northeastern parts of the county which are now in the county of Tyne and Wear..

They cause major losses in production; they increase the danger, difficulty, and expense of mining; and sometimes they force the abandonment of large blocks of coal reserves, or even of entire mines.

Many of these guides can be found online at the Kentucky Geological Survey website, along with a wealth of mining information. The Indiana Geological Survey also published a core book of the Illinois Basin.

These include the Colchester, Danville, Davis, Dekoven, Herrin, Jamestown, Seelyville, and Springfield Coals. Beneath much of Illinois lies a black treasure—coal.

Illinois coal deposits began to form more than million years ago during the Pennsylvanian Period, when the land that is now Illinois was near the equator. In a succession of dense, tropical swamps, the ancestors of modern ferns and scouring rushes grew as tall as trees, while dragonflies with wingspans of up to 2 feet droned over the forest floor.

For the first time, this information has been summarized and made accessible in one volume to help both geologists and non-geologists better.

In Illinois, deep-minable coal resources are distributed over 67 counties. Resources with a high potential for development are concentrated in the west-central, southwestern, and southern parts of the coal field, and resources with more» a moderate or low potential are concentrated in the central, eastern, and north-central parts of the coal.

Matsui et al. () attempted to visualise the influence of geological disturbances over the performance of a roadheader during drivage of a coalmine tunnel. However, this study was limited up to the affect of faults by: A major portion of ground control problems encountered in underground coal mines can be attributed to geologic features in the strata surrounding the extracted coal seam.

The U.S. Bureau of Mines has compiled information from several sources on the geological features that contribute to ground control problems in underground coal mines. Nonfuel minerals.
