Description:
Abstract:
Information regarding historical coal-preparation plants in Indiana was compiled from maps by Eggert (1979) and Weismiller and Mroczynski (1978). Additional information on plants that operated more recently was obtained from various reports in the IGS publication series titled "Directory of Coal Mines and Producers in Indiana," from the Coal Mine Information System (CMIS) of the Indiana Geological Survey, and from various editions of the Keystone Coal Industry Manual (Coal Age, 1987, 1989, 1991, 1993,1995, 2000, 2005).

Information that was compiled includes (1) identification numbers of preparation plants and (or) associated mines, (2) names of preparation plants and (or) associated mines, (3) starting and ending dates of preparation plants and (or) associated mines, (4) coalbeds that were processed through preparation plants or that were produced by associated mines, (5) coal production (tons) from mines associated with preparation plants, (6) and miscellenous notes regarding preparation plants, including notes taken at a meeting of personnel of the Indiana Geological Survey and the Indiana Division of Reclamation, Indiana Department of Natural Resources (October 2006).

This Microsoft Excel spreadsheet is intended to be used in conjunction with an ESRI ArcMap point shapefile (COAL_PREPARATION_PLANTS_IN). A key site-identification number (ID_IGS) can be used to relate records in the spreadsheet with records in the shapefile.

This GIS layer was produced as part of an investigation that was conducted in 2006-07 that was a cooperative project of the Indiana Geological Survey, R.E. Mourdock and Associates, LLC., and Purdue University, Calumet. Funding was provided by the Center for Coal Technology Research, Purdue University, West Lafayette.

Purpose:
This spreadsheet was created to provide information regarding coal-preparation plants that have operated in Indiana since the 1930s.
Supplemental_Information:
This spreadsheet was produced in association with a GIS layer named "COAL_PREPARATION_PLANTS_IN.SHP."
