Wyoming Coal Maps & Projects
Coal is found in many parts of Wyoming at outcrops and in the subsurface. Coal production takes place where economic, geologic, political, and environmental factors allow for mining operations. Most of the coal produced in Wyoming is transported out of state for consumers. This page contains links to maps, Google Earth files, GIS datasets, and WSGS publications describing the locations of coal resources and mining activity in Wyoming.
