The report describes a comprehensive computer program which allows the user to simulate a wide range of coal preparation plant configurations and modes of operation. The program was designed to maximize the yield of clean coal while minimizing the impurities. The configuration, mode of operation, and coal feed can be varied to provide solutions to a wide range of problems. The program is written in modular form using standard features of Fortran IV language.
