The question is often asked ‘‘How
much coal is there in an acre?’ So
much coal land has been leased and
bought that the question is pertinent.
A cubic foot of coal makes a bushel.
An acre is a little over 200 feet each
way, or 43,560 square feet, equal to
43,500 bushels in a one foot vein. H
a vein is four feet thick an acre con-
tains 174,240 bushels, and a five foot
vein would produce 227,800 bushels.
Containing 25 bushels to the ton a
four foot vein would produce 6,700
tons to the acre. At three cents a
ton royalty the coal would be worth
$278.80 an acre. A farmer writing
to a friend of his says that the above
figures are correct so far as they go,
and adds: ‘‘The Pittsburg or river
vein, by all tests made knowa, is
from five to eight feet in thickness,
but we will take the average, which
is six and one-half, and multiply by
43,560, the number of bashels in a
one foot vein to the acre, and we
have 283,140 bushels of coal vuder
one acre of land. Count this at eight
cents per bushel; we have $22,651.20.
Allow one-half for mining and other
expenses, and we have left, $11,325.40
