Get this from a library. Lignites of the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain. [W L Fisher]. For the Gulf Coast region, the evaluation will include reviews of the stratigraphic setting, resource potential, and the quality of the lignites in four coal-producing areas. These areas are: the Sabine Uplift (including parts of Texas and Louisiana), Northeast Texas, Central Texas, and South Texas.

RI Lignites of the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain, by W. Fisher. p., 67 figs., 5 tables, 2 appendices, ISSN: X: Print. To purchase this publication. Coal deposits in the Wilcox Group of central Texas have been regarded as the richest coal resources in the Gulf Coastal Plain.

Although minable coal beds appear to be less numerous and generally higher in sulfur content (1 percent average, as-received basis; table 1) than Wilcox coal deposits in the Northeast Texas and Louisiana Sabine assessment areas ( and percent. Abstract. The floral composition of palynomorph assemblages of Jacksonian Texas lignites is closely linked to depositional systems.

Localities on the eastern Gulf coastal plain are included in the late Eocene Fayette delta system, and lignite formation is considered to have occurred in lower deltaic environments. The Wilcox Group (Paleocene to Eocene) of the Sabine uplift, a structural arch in northeastern Texas and northwestern Louisiana (Figure 1), has lignite zones that approach subbituminous rank (see Chapter 4, this publication).These coals are among the highest quality resources known within the Gulf Coastal Plain because of their low ash yield and sulfur content.

LIGNITE — Almost all current coal production in Texas is located in the Tertiary-aged lignite belts that extend across the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain from the Rio Grande in South Texas to the Arkansas and Louisiana borders in East Texas.

The nonbanded coals are different from other Tertiary coals of the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Plain: unlike lignites that are typical of the older Wilcox Group (Paleocene-Eocene) and younger Jackson Group (Eocene), nonbanded coals of the Claiborne Group have high vitrinite-reflectance values ( R max) and high calorific yields (average kcal Cited by: 5.

The southern Black Hills and northeastern Colorado, within the Great Plains region, also contain sedimentary uranium shales and lignites, deposited contemporaneously in swampy areas or lakes.

Abstract. The East Texas Basin and southeastern Texas Gulf Coast contain a variety of co-located CO 2 sources and sinks that may facilitate development of new clean-coal facilities.

These facilities can be linked to mature oil fields with potential for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) from miscible CO 2 floods. Twenty-three reservoirs in the East Texas Basin and Author: William A Ambrose, C. Breton, Vanessa Nunez-Lopez, Gurcan Gulen.

The entire State lies in the great Mississippi Gulf which in Cretaceous time extended to Cairo, and hence it is included in the coastal plain of recent geologic age.

The oldest formation is Cretaceous, which is found only in a few outlying islets on the margin of the general plain of nearly horizontal Tertiary beds in the northwestern corner.
