This is a crash course on coal geology. The course runs for 2 days, 3 hours each day, live on Zoom but can also be taught in the field or at your office. We understand the critical need for such a course considering we are in a global “energy transition” and while there are several options to learn about CCUS, geothermal, and solar, there is very little training out there for today’s coal geologist/engineer.
Lessons learned from coal-bearing successions across the US will be shared with participants such that they can employ best practices in their own data interpretation workflows.
If you are dealing with complex structural deformation in your coal mine, then we can add an additional 3-hour module on detection of faults using well-logs and techniques you can use to overcome correlation and mining challenges.
Who Should Attend
• Mining Engineers
and all who wish to develop a better understanding of the factors that control the distribution and quality of coal seams
Introduction to coal mining and markets
Coal forming environments of deposition through time – examples from modern and ancient sedimentary systems
Sequence Stratigraphic controls on the distribution and preservation of coal seams
Well log signatures of coal in GR, Resistivity, Density and Borehole Image Logs
Fundamentals of coal rank, grade and type
Introduction to coal macerals
Mining techniques, resources and reserves
Exercise on coal logging
This course is scheduled for June 9-10, 2022 between 7:00-10:00 am US Mountain Time and costs $500 for professionals and $250 for students and unemployed professionals. For those wishing to add-on the structural mapping of coal seams module that will be an additional $250 charge.
