Manganese in West Virginia coal averaged 21.29 ppm (± 42.58 ppm) with a histogram showing a distribution strongly skewed to low values, a tail toward higher values with a maximum of 682 ppm in the Pocahontas No.2 coal.  Manganese correlated very poorly with ash yield (r = +0.5068) and did not correlate with total sulfur, pyritic sulfur or other trace elements.
