Abstract/Summary

The following report summarises the structure and mining of 1:l0,000 Sheet SO98NW which lies within the southern part of the South Staffs Coalfield. The map forms part of the l:50,000 Geological Sheet 167 (Dudley), covering an area between Dudley and its environs in the north, and Stourbridge to Cradley Heath in the south. The geology of the coal field was the subject of a memoir by J Beete-Jukes (1859). The original 1:l0,560 geological survey was undertaken by T H Whitehead (1919-1922) and an accompanying memoir was published in 1927. The exposed coalfield was largely resurveyed by R J 0 Hamblin, M R Henson and D Wilson between 1976 and 1978 under the direction of G W Green, District Geologist, utilising new mining, borehole and site investigation data provided by the NCB, local authorities and consultancies. The second edition of this report is published with an appendix which provides additional descriptions of the geology of the district resulting from minor revisions to the 1:l0,000-scale map by C N Waters i n 1991. The text of the first edition is published largely unaltered, save for minor typographical corrections.
