Click on image for larger view

The stratigraphic distribution of Lanthanum (La) shows no trend with almost all coals averaging less than 20 ppm lanthanum.  This distribution occurs because most lanthanum is a component in the trace mineral monazite present in trace amounts in almost all West Virginia coals.
