The Sydney Coal Field - A Potentially Valuable Resource

CIM Bulletin, 1972

ALEX BROWN. Coal Adviser, Department of Energy, Mines and Resources, Ottawa, Canada

THE SYDNEY COAL FIELD has long been afflicted by high costs and low productivities. However, a distinct possibility now exists that improvements can be made in costs, productivities and revenues. If these hopes materialize, the Sydney coal field will once again be regarded as a valuable asset in our national inventory of energy and metallurgical coals.
