Westray was the only operating underground coal mine in Pictou County at the time of the explosion. The Pictou coalfield had been mined for some years, and elements of the disaster rest in the nature of that coalfield with its thick and gassy seams. The Foord seam, which Westray was mining, has hosted at least eight mines. Coal seam definition is - a bed of coal usually thick enough to be profitably mined.

Proceedings and Transactions of the Nova Scotian Institute of Natural Science, 3(3), The Foord coal seam (from which the main street of Stellarton derives its name) runs through most of the town and is part of the greater Stellarton Basin/Pictou Coalfield.

As part of an area recognized by geologists for its unique oil shales and thick coal seams, the Foord seam is said to be the thickest in the world with estimate of coal seams. The Pictou coalfield, located about kilometres (km) from the Northumberland Strait, encompasses roughly an area of 18 by 6 km, and comprises 15 major coal seams ranging from 1 to 14 metres (m) thick, in the three areas of Westville, Stellarton, and Thorburn-Greenwood.

In the most significant operator in this coalfield, the Cumberland Railway and Coal company, was taken over by the Dominion Coal Company which also controlled mines in Cape Breton County and later Pictou County.

Dominion Coal and its successors dominated the coal industry in Nova Scotia until Westray Mine conducted its operations in the Pictou coalfield of Nova Scotia.

Although coal mining had taken place in the gassy seams of Pictou for over years, Westray was the only underground coal mine to operate in the region since the nearby Allan Mine closed in the s.

Pictou (/ ˈ p ɪ k t oʊ / PIK-toh; Scottish Gaelic: Baile Phiogto) is a town in Pictou County, in the Canadian province of Nova d on the north shore of Pictou Harbour, the town is approximately 10 km (6 miles) north of the larger town of New Glasgow.

Once an active shipping port and the shire town of the county, today Pictou is primarily a local service centre for surrounding. The events are sponsored by the Westray Families Group, the Museum of Industry and the Town of Stellarton.

Coal mining has affected, in one way or another, thousands of Pictou County families. In the early s, the General Mining Association started mining the Foord Seam in.

Oil shale and coal quality. The stellarite-oil shale from the Oil-Coal Seam in the Pictou Coalfield has the optimum yield potential ( kg/t/%orgC) followed by a generation ratio of kg/t/%orgC for the other oil shales.

MLA Citation. Lama, R. and CSIRO. Division of Geomechanics. A coalfield is an area of certain uniform characteristics where coal is mined.

The criteria for determining the approximate boundary of a coalfield are geographical and cultural, in addition to geological. A coalfield often groups the seams of coal, railroad companies, cultural groups, and watersheds and other geographical considerations.Water production: as water pressure in the coal seam must be reduced, some CSG wells produce large volumes of water (averag litres of water per day per well in Queensland).

This water can contain salt and other contaminants that exist normally in coal seams in varying concentrations. The total "demonstrated" coal re- sources of the four seams in the Donkin reserve area amount to million short tons ( million t). COAL QUALITY The quality of the high volatile A bituminous coal of the productive seams is shown in the representative analysis of the Harbour seam (Swartzman, ) given in Table 1.
