This report forms part of a study carried out on behalf of the Coal Authority (Contract No. CA/18/1955 – HQ – COAL APPRAISAL MAP, BGS project Code E2377R74). The work was carried out between 12.06-17.08.06 at the offices of the British Geological Survey, Keyworth, Nottingham. The objectives of the project were to provide maps to show the remaining potential for coal exploitation by opencast and deep mine methods. This report describes the data and methodology used to create these coal resource appraisal maps. The maps were constructed digitally using ESRI® ArcMAPTM 9.1 GIS software. Sample paper maps of North Derbyshire were provided at 1:100,000 and 1:50,000 scale. It is intended that maps for other areas of Great Britain will be provided upon request.
