Origin of the boghead coals

Professional Paper 132- I



The bituminous rocks of sedimentary origin may be classified roughly under two main heads - coals and bituminous shales. In a strict sense no definite line can be drawn between these two groups, because coals may be insensibly grade into bituminous shales. Chemically the boghead coals are preeminently bituminous.
