Click on map for larger viewThe number of samples with chlorine (Cl) analyses was relatively low (n = 254) and were generally concentrated in Kanawha, Fayette and Nicholas counties where moderate to high chlorine contents were observed.  Coals of north central West Virginia were generally low in chlorine content.  These geographic distributions reflect the stratigraphic distribution of chlorine with New River through Allegheny coals containing high chlorine and Upper Pennsylvanian and Pocahontas Formation coals containing low chlorine abundances.
