      COAL, OIL, AND GAS OF THE FOXBURG QUADRANGLE, PENNSYLVANIA. By EUGENE WESLEY SHAW and MALCOLM J. MUNN. INTRODUCTION. The area discussed in this bulletin, is a minute quadrangle of the United States Geological Survey, bounded by meridians 79° 30' and 79° 45' and parallels 41° 00' and 41° 15'. These inclose a rectangleAuthor: Eugene Wesley Shaw, Malcolm John Munn. Clarion formation of Allegheny series, which overlies the Pottsville, is 65 to 90 ft thick and consists of cyclic sequences of clay, coal, shale, siltstone, silty shale, and sandstone. Includes (ascending) Brookville coal, Clarion sandstone, Clarion coal, Vanport limestone, and Kittanning sandstone.

      I'm told that William L. Iscrupe's book Pennsylvania Line: a Research Guide to Pennsylvania Genealogy and Local History (, Southwest Pennsylvania Genealogical Services, Laughlintown, PA) is a good source for county and township histories. One of the most useful books any genealogist can own is: Webster's New Geographical Dictionary. G. & C. The Pennsylvanian Pottsville Formation is a mapped bedrock unit in Pennsylvania, western Maryland, West Virginia, and Ohio. The formation is also recognized in Alabama. It is a major ridge-former in the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians of the eastern United States. The Pottsville Formation is conspicuous at many sites along the Allegheny Front, the eastern escarpment of the Allegheny or.

      It includes the Cumberland (Allegheny) Plateau and the Cumberland Mountains, a term recently employed for Pine and Cumberland mountains and the intervening Middlesboro Basin (Fenneman, ). The western margin from the Tennessee line to Rowan County is a west-facing cuesta. This is the Pottsville Escarpment. The history of coal is a long one, stretching back 25 centuries or more. In the fourth century B.C., the Greek philosopher Aristotle mentioned coal in his book, Meteorology. Coal was commonly used in Europe as early as the thirteenth century; however, with the invention of the steam.

THE LOWER ALLEGHENY-POTTSVILLE SECTION Homewood formation (formerly thought to be the equivalent of the Homewood sandstone of the Beaver River section), the average interval is about I20 feet (Table I). The problem was called to the writer's attention in the spring of and the field work which forms the basis of this report was.

The reports of the Second Pennsylvania Geological Survey covering the region along the Beaver River and its tributaries in Lawrence, Mercer, and Butler counties, show that the average interval between the Vanport limestone of the Allegheny group and the Homewood formation (sandstone), the youngest member of the Pottsville series is 50 feet.

In the Foxburg quadrangle along the Allegheny River Cited by: 1. Geologic unit mapped in Pennsylvania: Sandstone, shale, and some coal; includes lower Pottsville conglomerate and overlying strata equivalent to Allegheny Formation in north-central outliers; formational boundary not determined due to lack of correlation with Brookville-Clarion coal.

Studies of the physical stratigraphy and analyses of the Middle Pennsylvanian flora and fauna of some coal beds and marine units of the Breathitt Formation in Kentucky, the Pottsville and Allegheny Formations in Ohio, and the Kanawha Formation and Charleston Sandstone in West Virginia show a need for the revision of stratigraphic nomenclature of the Pottsville Formation and the lower part of.

Lower Allegheny detrital rocks thicken to the north and west. The Vanport limestone thins to the west-southwest, northwest, and north by interfingering with marine shales and to the northeast by gradation into chert and flint clay.

The area of thickest limestone was an area of tectonic by: 9. The Pottsville and Allegheny constitute the lower two groups of the Pennsylvanian in western Pennsylvania. The Pottsville, un-conformably overlying the Mississippian, averages about feet in thickness. Throughout most of western Pennsylvania, the lower two-thirds of the Pottsville con-sists of massive sandstone (the Connoque.

The geology of the Anthracite and Bituminous Coal Regions of Pennsylvania is fundamental to most of the contents of this book.

Since most of the coal ash placement sites described in this book are in the anthracite coal fields, the geology of the Anthracite Region is Size: 1MB. In Pennsylvania, the Allegheny Formation includes rocks from the base of the Brooksville Coal to the top of the Upper Freeport Coal, and was defined to include all economically significant coals in the upper Pennsylvanian sequence.

The formation consists of cyclothemic sequences of coal, shale, limestone, sandstone, and : Appalachian Mountains.

That contact corresponds to the boundary between the Pottsville and the Allegheny Formations of the earlier Geologic Map of Kentucky (Jillson, ) and as used in Ohio (fig. 10). The Skyline coal zone is commonly characterized by a coal bed as thick as 15 ft at its base which is strip-mined on hilltops in many places in the central and northern parts of the coal field.

Surface geology of these areas is comprised of the Kanawha and New River Formations of the Pottsville Group (Rice et al. ), Pennsylvanian Period, Paleozoic Era.

In anthracite coal field of northeastern Pennsylvania (the typical Pottsville region) the Pottsville formation is 1, feet thick, and three paleobotanic subdivisions of it have been recognized by David White and other geologists.

For convenience these are called upper Pottsville, middle Pottsville, and lower. thickened, or removed sections of the geologic column. The formation has a maximum thickness of feet and a minimum thickness of 85 feet.
