Nigeria’s coal deposits identified How We Made It In

The coal is predominantly in one seam that outcrops along the eastern side of the basin at the base of the Enugu Escarpment and dips gently towards the centre of the basin. Little is currently known about the coal resource potential on the western side of the basin along the east bank of the Niger River. However, coal outcroppings have been reported at Idah and Dekina on the north-western side of the basin.

Chemistry of Maiganga Coal Deposit, Upper Benue Trough

Nigeria’s coal reserves are in excess of 1.2 billion tones of proven, indicated and inferred categories (Famuboni, 1996). Despite the above fact, not much of the county’s coal has been useful as a coking coal. Thus, there is need for targeted research on the cokability or otherwise to be carried out on the Nigerian's coal deposit that will indicate which deposit have coking characteristics

presence of heavy and trace metals in Nigeria coal deposits (Adaikpo et al., 2005). CONCLUSION Samples of coal deposits from Enugu and Benue were classified as sub-bituminous coal while that from Delta were classified as lignite or brown coal from the proximate and elemental analysis. Coal samples from Enugu and Benue respectively indicated higher economic value than that from Delta based on
