KGS receives funding from the U.S. Geological Survey to sample coal-related paleosols and underclay deposits from the Appalachian Basin

Congratulations to Kentucky Geological Survey geologist William Andrews for receiving funding from the U.S. Geological Survey for the project “Geochemical Sampling of Rare Earth Element-Enriched High-Alumina Underclay Deposits in the Central and Eastern U.S.” During the 2020-21 fiscal year, KGS will organize and facilitate sampling of 600 Pennsylvanian coal-related paleosols and underclay deposits in the northern Appalachian Basin states of Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, and Iowa. The samples will undergo a robust chemical analysis for rare earth and critical elements. The West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey is the overall project leader and will coordinate the sampling.
