This is a coverage that shows areas in the Kaiparowits Plateauwhere geologic conditions in the Calico and A-sequences are morefavorable for current underground mining technology (Hettinger andother, 1996, fig. 22). This coverage contains nine attributes ofinformation. It was compiled by computing the geometricintersection of nine polygon coverages using the ARC/INFO UNIONcommand.This coverage is characterized as being a guide to where the morefavorable coal areas are likely to be for current undergroundmining technology: areas where coal beds in the Calico and A-sequences are greater than 3.5 feet thick, less than 3,000 feetdeep, and inclined by less than 12 degrees. Note: Coal beds lessthan 3.5 feet thick are generally...
