Bituminous Coal is the most abundant coal in active U.S. mining regions. Its moisture content usually is less than 20 percent. The heat content of Bituminous Coal ranges from 21 to 30 million Btu per ton on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis. Production data include quantities extracted from surface and underground mines, and normally exclude wastes removed at mines or associated reparation plants.
