Resource vs. Reserve • Resource is how much coal is actually in the ground. • Reserves are the amount of measured resource coal that could be expected to be economically mineable under the current economic and technological conditions.

    Mineral resource classification is the classification of mineral resources based on an increasing level of geological knowledge and confidence. Mineral deposits can be classified as: Mineral resources that are potentially valuable, and for which reasonable prospects exist for eventual economic extraction.; Mineral reserves or Ore reserves are valuable and legally, economically, and technically. It has been estimated that the vast U.S. Coal resources can be used as an economic way of producing power for another years as predicted by both federal and industrial energy analysis sources.
