This table contains 13 series, with data for years 1946 - 2007 (not all combinations necessarily have data for all years), and is no longer being released. This table contains data described by the following dimensions (Not all combinations are available): Geography (6 items: Canada; Nova Scotia; New Brunswick; Saskatchewan; ...); Coal and coke, components (8 items: Total coal production, all types; Bituminous; Subbituminous; Lignite; ...).
Data presented at the national level by supply and disposition characteristic (supply of coal, coal coke received, etc.).
Canada has about 1% of the world’s coal resources. Ninety-seven per cent of Canada’s coal is found in the Western Provinces, although it is also found in Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. There are coal resources in Northern Canada, but they are not well explored. Coal is used to generate electricity (thermal or steam coal) and to make steel (metallurgical or coking coal, used to produce the coke that, in turn, serves as a heat source and reducing agent in the steel manufacturing process).
Database is designed to define the Ardley coal picks including coal stratigraphic correlation and coal quality (clean coal, shaly-coal and coaly-shale), formation tops and lithological components, such as sandstone channels and tonstein markers. It represents the base of the Edson CBM Exploration Block-Alberta, Ardley Coal Zone Characterization and Sandstone Channels Geometry report, Earth Sciences Report 2007-06.
Contained within the 5th Edition (1978 to 1995) of the National Atlas of Canada are two maps. The first map shows the Canadian coal resources and infrastructure of the Canadian coal industry in 1982. Details given for coal resources are: coal-bearing formations (classed by geological period), coal zones and named coalfields. Infrastructure consists of existing and proposed coal mines, major coal users, coal transportation routes and coal trade symbols.
Data presented at the national and provincial levels, by coal types and uses (bituminous, sub-bituminous, etc.) and by volume of production and exports. Not all combinations are available.
Cost of fuel for electric power generation by fuel type, including coal, propane, uranium, etc. These data are presented at the national and provincial levels, however not all combinations are available.
Data presented on petroleum products and renewable fuel by supply and disposition characteristics (e.g., production, exports, inventories, domestic consumption). Not all combinations are available.
Alberta Geological Survey created a coal and coalbed methane (CBM) database to capture and manage CBM data. The database compiles different sources and contains information on 7923 wells (15,200 formation picks, 37,357 coal picks, 495 coal analyses and 363 vitrinite reflectance measurements). From this parent dataset, individual coal zones were evaluated. This record describes the Ardley Coal Zone net coal thickness.
The amount of electricity generated by electric utility thermal plants, in megawatt hours. Fuels include coal, petroleum products, uranium and others. Data presented at the national and provincial levels, however not all combinations are available.
