ABSTRACT: Daviess County, Indiana is located in the southeastern part of the Illinois Basin. Coal resource calculations were performed on twelve Pennsylvanian-aged coal beds within Daviess County using GRASS, a workstations-based geographic information system. Originally, Daviess County had 4,476,951,000 short tons of coal. As of 1985, 17,010,000 short tons of coal had been mined out, leaving 4,459,941,000 short tons of coal in the ground.

Notes: Publications in the Indiana Geological Survey Open-File series have been inconsistently named using a variety of series titles including "Open-File Report," "Open-File Map," and "Open-File Study." Prior to 1994, a publication in this series was generally referred to as an "Open-File Report" (but not always). To help reduce confusion created by these inconsistencies, the IGS now refers to every publication in the Open-File series as an "Open-File Study." To be entirely correct in writing a bibliographic reference for a publication, one should use the series name and number that appears on the publication itself.
