SURVEY OF RESERVES OF THE UPPER SILESIAN COAL BASIN ON THE BASIS OF THE MAP OF·COAL CQNTENT

In its major part, the Upper Silesian Coal Basin belongs to Poland (approximately 41500 sq.km); only its southwestern part belongs to Czeohoslovakia.

This is a paralic coal basin of Upper Carboniferous age. Its productive series is but partly exposed on the surface. The vast majority of beds is overlaid by Permian, Triassic, Jura and Miocene sediments. Southwards this coal basin dips underneath the Carpathian overthrust.

The stratigraphy of the Carboniferous sediments is diagrammatically shown on Table 1 (with numbers of coalbeds).
