Beryllium abundances in all West Virginia coal beds show a skewed distribution with a mean of 2.57 ppm (± 2.04 ppm) on a whole coal basis. Maximum Be content was 24.72 ppm in a bench of the Winifrede coal. Beryllium did not correlate with ash yield, total sulfur, pyritic sulfur or most other trace elements with a slight correlation (r = +0.6100) with yttrium (Y).
