Click on image for larger view

The stratigraphic distribution of Antimony (Sb) shows a general upward decreasing antimony content from Lower to Upper Pennsylvanian coals.  Erratic antimony contents were noted in Lower Pennsylvanian coals. Conemaugh coals were generally high in antimony (see cautionary notes page), but most major West Virginia coal beds have low antimony contents, especially Monongahela coals.
