Spurred by major environmental impacts from coal mining in the 's and 's, the U.S. Congress passed the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act in Coal mining didn’t begin until when a dude named Enoch Hjalmar Furuhjelm opened the first coal mine in what is now called Port Graham. Once gold was discovered in Alaska coal demand increased expediently as steam ships began to take prospectors and their supplies up rivers and on ships across the Gulf of Alaska.

Described here are all hardrock mining exploration projects in Alaska that had onsite exploration between and Active prospects and claims without significant current exploration activity were omitted, but number in the hundreds. Placer mining is also not included and coal information is .   This geotechnical appendix supports the on-going coastal erosion feasibility study for Barrow, Alaska, being prepared by the Alaska District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Exploration of coal deposits of the Point Barrow and Wainwright Areas, Northern Alaska. the Bureau undertook to explore coal deposits in vicinity.

Results show that enough coal to supply local. The Northern Great Plains Province has lignite and subbituminous coal of Cretaceous, Paleocene and Eocene age. The coal, largely very low in sulfur, occurs in beds up to ft (30 m) thick and is strip-mined.

The Rocky Mountain Province contains a great variety of coal deposits in numerous separate intermontane basins. Most of Alaska's coal can be found in the northern part of the state, north of the Brooks range, near the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas.

88% of the state's identified coal resources are in these Arctic deposits. Although this coal has a higher energy content than coal at Usibelli Coal Mine (Alaska's only active mine), and Chuitna (an active prospect), the deposits are very remote and have never.

The publications of this series present the results of research and investigations conducted by the Bureau at its research centers or laboratories, or in mines, quarries, smelters, refineries, oilfields, plants and other non-Bureau properties.

The Northern Alaska-Slope coal province (fig. 1) is the largest in the State. It is situated at lat 69°N. and includes ab mi 2 (82, km 2) underlain by coal-bearing rocks, both near the surface and in the deep subsurface (see figs. 2 and 3). Rocks in this coal province range in age from Precambrian to Holocene; a representative.

North America - North America - Coal deposits: Coal deposits were preserved in basins between gentle upwarps in the buried extensions of the shield beneath the Interior Lowlands and also in mildly folded rocks in the miogeosynclines of the inner, less disturbed parts of the Appalachians and Cordilleras.

Below the Mississippi-Ohio lowlands and the Great Plains, the outer edge of the shield was. The Usibelli Coal Mine, a family-owned mine located outside Healy, is the only operating coal mine in Alaska. The mine has been in continuous operation since and celebrated its 75th year mining Alaska coal in The mine fuels approximately 32 percent of Interior Alaska.

The BLM Alaska minerals program has responsibilities and adjudicative duties associated with Federal mining claims, mineral surveys and patents, validation of title evidence, review of mineral validity reports, service of Federal minerals contest actions, guidance for surface use management and use and occupancy under the mining laws.

Point Barrow is located on the very northern tip of Alaska. The date of construction of the original Point Barrow Airfield has not been determined. The earliest reference which has been located of the Point Barrow Airfield was from Drew Van Horne, who reported, “Wien Alaska Airlines operated flights since the s from Barrow.” The USGS.

Ina group of USGS geologists prepared a detailed summary of existing data and estimates concerning coal in the three major coal fields in Alaska; "Northern Alaska – Slope" (the location of the Western Arctic coal fields), "Central Alaska – Nenana" (the location of Usibelli Coal Mine), and "Southern Alaska – Cook Inlet" (the location of the proposed.
