Click on map for larger viewThe geographic distribution of whole coal antimony abundance shows low values (<2 ppm) over most of West Virginia.  A "possible" region of higher (2-3 ppm) antimony occurs along the southeastern edge of the southern coalfield from Randolph to Raleigh counties, coinciding with areas where the Pocahontas No. 6, Fire Creek and Beckley coals were mined (note the antimony
abundance of these coals in the stratigraphic distribution ).
