A review of Alabama lignite deposits

AAPG Studies in Geology 62- 16
Edited by: Peter D. WarwickAlexander K. KarlsenMatthew D. Merrill, and Brett J. Valentine



This review of Alabama lignite deposits is a part of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Coal Resource Assessment (NCRA) of the Gulf Coast region (see Ruppert et al., 2002; Dennen, 2009; and other chapters of this publication). Because lignite is not currently mined in Alabama, a detailed assessment of the state was not made, and only a review is presented in this chapter.
