This legacy dataset contains a series of maps showing the potential of the UK onshore coal resources for both exploitation by conventional (mining) and new technologies. The data available here is a facsmilie of the maps that were originally published in 2004.

The mining technologies shown in the maps include:

  • underground and opencast mining
  • coal mine methane (CMM)
  • abandoned mine methane (AMM)

The new technologies shown in the map include:

  • underground coal gasification (UCG)
  • virgin coalbed methane (VCBM)
  • coal seam-related carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration

These maps are result of the 'Study of the UK coal resource for new exploitation technologies' project. This report summarises the results.
