Kentucky Coal Resources Information System (KCRIS)

The Kentucky Coal Resources Information System (KCRIS) was established to provide coal-related data to the public. KCRIS contains computerized coal borehole, thickness (site measurements), resource, production, coal-quality, core-description, and coal-related engineering data. These data have been compiled by the Survey for the last two decades, and the databases are continually updated with new information. As other databases become more complete, they will be added to the KCRIS data structure.
