Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ...ledges of limestone were noted in this series of thin laminated measures at distances of about 180, 160 and 115 feet below the Hazard coal, the first two probably of the same horizon. Occasionally a massive sandstone appears in the top of the series, but not often unless it combines with cliff-making sandstones on the top and directly under the Haddix coal. This latter rock (under the Haddix coal) is a conspicuous feature of the topography, presenting often cliffs on the hillsides 10 to 30 feet or more in height and with none others near below. The Haddix Coal Bed has now but few openings in this region showing thickness, from which it may be inferred that it is generally too thin to work. None whatever were found on Campbell creek and those on Forked-mouth creek have less than 2VU feet of coal. Openings on Willard creek give 3 feet of coal. On Big creek none were found elsewhere than on Curley fork, where the coal runs from 3 to 4 feet thick. The usual excellence of this coal makes it available where coal of poorer quality could not be mined profitably. Above the Haddix bed, sometimes with a little shale between, is a hard, usually very smooth-faced sandstone 20 feet, more or less, thick. The Young Coau Bed elsewhere, lies about midway between the Haddix and Hazard beds. At Domino, 3 miles by rail below Hazard, about 3VL, feet of coal is opened beside the incline and 55 feet below the mine there opened into the Hazard coal bed, which may belong to this bed but may possibly be the Haddix coal, but in the region under present discussion no sign of this bed was found excepting in one uncertain instance. The interval between the Hazard and Haddix coal beds is almost wholly of sandstone, appearing frequently in cliffs, the upper half...show more
