In 1986, the Utah Geological Survey and the University of Utah's Department of Chemical and Fuels Engineering (formerly Department of Fuels Engineering) entered into a cooperative agreement to collect samples from the coal seams in Utah's active mines. As a result, there are 28 coal samples stored at the Department of Chemical and Fuels Engineering which represent 16 different coal seams. The following characteristics are summarized for each sample: vitrinite reflectance, maceral analyses (white and UV light), combined microlithotype analyses, density, porosity, coking potential (Composition Balance Index, Rank Index, and Stability Factor), and chemical analyses (elemental and proximate). This information should be of use to both coal operators and purchasers to determine the best uses for Utah coal.
