Coal Bed Mapping Project (CBMP)

line DISCLAIMER: The data represented on the CBMP GIS website is not a complete documentation of all historic mining. WVGES is only able to display the data it has received. Every effort is made by the agency to collect, compile and serve mined area polygons and associated mine maps but known gaps in our data exist. Updates to the data set occur as new data becomes available. If you are in possession of mine maps, drilling information or other data that would improve this site please contact Jim Britton
