Location: Four miles southeast of Center, North Dakota. Mine production: BNI Coal, Ltd.’s Center Mine produces an average of million tons every year with coal being sold to the nearby Young Station.

LIGNITE RESOURCES OF NORTH DAKOTA INTRODUCTION This report on the lignite resources of North Dakota has been prepared in cooperation with the North Dakota Geological Survey and the North Dakota Research Foundation as part of the program of the Interior Department for the integrated development of the Missouri River Basin.

The estimates are basedCited by: Lignite is a city in Burke County, North Dakota, United population was at the census. Lignite was founded in and was named for the quantities of lignite, a low-grade coal, present in the : Burke. InR.A. Brant estimated there were billion tons of lignite in North Dakota.

For more than 50 years, Brant’s report has been the definitive resource estimate for North Dakota’s coal deposits. Brant calculated the resource based on lignite beds that were more.

Purpose: The main objective of the Dakota core drilling program was to determine reserves of uraniferous lignite based on chemical uranium and spectrographic determinations from unweathered samples, particularly from those areas where surface sampling of the beds during the previous field season indicated that significant deposits of uranium-bearing lignite might be : Howard Davis Zeller.

Lignite, often referred to as brown coal, is a soft, brown, combustible, sedimentary rock formed from naturally compressed is considered the lowest rank of coal due to its relatively low heat has a carbon content around 60–70 percent.

It is mined all around the world, is used almost exclusively as a fuel for steam-electric power generation, and is the coal which is most. The year supply of lignite is based on a supply of 25 billion tons and a current production rate of 30 million tons per year.

Source: Strippable Lignite Deposits of North Dakota, Edward C. Murphy, North Dakota Geological Survey, By the early s, North Dakota had approximately lignite mines. Together, these mines produced close to 1 million tons of coal. Inthe mine at Wilton, founded by General William Washburn, was the largest lignite mine in North Dakota.

The kind of coal that was formed in North Dakota is called lignite. Lignite is a soft, crumbly coal with a high moisture content. It burns fast and does not give off as much heat as harder coals. Lignite is good for power production because it is not usable for other purposes, like producing metals.

Lignite is a coal in the early stages of coalification, with properties intermediate to those of bituminous coal and peat. The two geographical areas of the U. with extensive lignite deposits are centered in the States of North Dakota and Texas.

The lignite in both areas has a high moisture contentFile Size: KB. The lignite industry directly employs 3, people in North Dakota. There indirect employees in the lignite industry in North Dakota. The lignite counties of McLean, Mercer and Oliver have some of the highest wages per job in North Dakota.

Lignite. The lignite industry is a very important component of North Dakota’s thriving energy sector. North Dakota has the second-largest known reserves of lignite in the world (behind only Australia) with an estimated 25 billion tons of recoverable resources.

It’s estimated that the state’s reserves will last more than years at the current rate of consumption. North Dakota’s lignite industry is an innovative and vital part of the state’s economy with a $3 billion economic impact.

The state supports 4, megawatts of lignite and other coal generation at seven locations providing low cost, reliable electric power to two million customers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana and Iowa.

It began as an accumulation of dead plant material in tropical or semitropical basins: swamps, lagoons and marshes.

As the basins filled with stagnant water, the plant debris became submerged so that atmospheric oxygen could not reach it. Lignite Research, Development and Marketing Program State Capitol, 14th Floor, E Boulevard Ave.
