Abstract

In 1974, the Iowa Legislature appropriated $3 million to Iowa State University for the Energy and Mineral Resources Research Institute to conduct a coal research program. One of the goals of this program was to provide an economic analysis of the mining, restoration, refining, transportation, and use of Iowa coal.
