Coal exploration activities to discover coal reserves include creating a geological map of the area, carrying out geochemical and geophysical surveys and exploration drilling. The mining operation only begins if the coal can be economically recovered. As per the BP statistical review, the world coal reserves are estimated to be 1035 × 10 9 t (1035 billion tonnes) .
Coal mining Coal mining Prospecting and exploration: The fundamental objective of coal prospecting is to discover coal resources through a search. In areas where coal mining has not been previously practiced, the search process should result in

2021-5-6 The goal of mineral and coal exploration is to locate large, high-grade reserves with minimal disturbance to the ground and the environment. Technological advances, including GPS surveying, airborne technologies and down-hole seismic imaging, have enabled companies to locate new deposits previously beyond discovery using traditional methods.
