Summary:

Beckley is extracting high quality, Low-Volatile metallurgical coal in the Pocahontas No. 3 seam.

The Pocahontas No. 3 coal bed is within the Lower Pennsylvania Pocahontas Formation of the Pottsville Group. Where greater than 1.17 ft (14 in) in thickness, it underlies all or parts of Wyoming, McDowell, Raleigh, Summers, Mercer, Greenbrier, and Fayette Counties in West Virginia, and parts of Wise, Dickenson, Buchanan, Scott, Russell, and Tazewell Counties in adjacent Virginia, an area within the central part of the Appalachian Plateaus. The eastern limit of the coal bed is along the Allegheny structural front. The western minable limit of the coal bed is in the subsurface and was selected where the thickness of the coal bed is less than 1.17 ft (Wood and others, 1983). The Pocahontas No. 3 coal bed is, in general, a high-rank, low-volatile bituminous, low-ash, low-sulfur coal that was once considered a standard for metallurgical coal (McColloch, 1995).
