Selected chemical, physical, and mineralogical measurements have been adapted to coal overburden sections of the Monongahela, Conemaugh, Allegheny, and New River formations of the Pennsylvanian in central and northern West Virginia. Field studies, core logging, simulated weathering, and laboratory measurements provide a basis for recognizing toxic (pH below 4.0) or potentially toxic (reduced sulfur sufficient for mineral acid in excess of neutralization capacity) rock or soil as well as superior materials (pH near neutral and high available phosphorus) for topsoiling mined lands. Laboratory measurements have been keyed to regional trends of coal and rock types within the nothern Appalachian coal basin. (Modified author abstract)
