The need for tactical exploration of the Selby Coalfield

This report describes methods used to attempt to discover any areas of Selby that might be particularly hazardous. The report concludes that major junction points might be more prone to faulting and thus recommends further exploration of these areas.

Produced by Liz Anderson on behalf of the National Coal Board. This report is follow up of the “Use of a Geosimplan study to assess the need for further exploration of the Selby Coalfield” report.
