Coking coals of western Colorado
L. R. Ladwig
Numerous authors over the years have presented data on Colorado coking coal deposits; however, the most important publications in recent years are those of Averitt (1966), Jones and Murray (1978), and Goolsby and others (1979). These most recent publications indicate that the Uinta region with the Somerset, Crested Butte, Grand Hogback, and Carbondale fields is the most important western Colorado coking coal producer while the San Juan region has been of historic importance only. Figure 1 shows the outline of these two regions.
