At branch Roof S Coal 61 Daniel's Creek, mile above Muddy ick Br. 950 At branch Roof S Coal 72 It will be observed that the bed is quite persistent as a thick coal, seldom showing a parting, over a great area--20 square miles or more. It is practically limited to the Rockcastle-Daniel's Creek region and parts of adjoining drainage. So far as observed, there are no faults in the region, the beds having an uninterrupted moderate dip northwestwardly. Some of the openings referred to above were driven under roof 100 feet or more as early as 18S2--as then noted by the Surveyand the coal then thrown out now appears, after the weathering of more than 20 years, nearly as bright and firm, and it burns as freely, as when stocked on the hillside. The chemical composition of this coal is shown, in part, by the following analyses made for the Survey; samples taken from near the outcrop: El. above Thick. Moist-Vol. Com. Fixed Locality. Tide. In. ure. Matter. Car. Ash Su.

The-'1-foot coal of the Whitehouse region, 55 feet below the 8-foot bed (No. 8), falls in the place of coal 7, which is absent or more
