Summary
Abstract: The purpose of this dataset is to give geologists and other scientists a
spatial database of major coal mines and their production in China. This data
set will be utilized in energy research and cartographic projects.

This dataset is a collection of major coal mine locations and production data
for The Peoples Republic of China. Included in this dataset are the locations
of major coal mines, Coal Mining Administrations, and the approximate annual
amount of coal and type mined annually in millions of metric tons.

Procedures_Used:
The major coal mine production points were digitized utilizing
ARC/VIEW from page-size maps found in the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency Report ERP 430-R-96-005.
