Ashort overview of data on geological investigation of the Polish bituminous coal basins.
A b s t r a c t. Polish bituminous coal basins are associated exclusively with Carboniferous deposits, differing in origin and geological structure. This paper presents only a short review of papers mainly of Polish authors on the geological structure, stratigraphy of coal-bearing deposits, quality of coal, as well as selected aspects of economic geology of three Polish bituminous coal basins: the Upper Silesian Coal Basin (USCB), Lower Silesian Coal Basin (LSCB) and Lublin Coal Basin (LCB). The paper provides also an overview on the investigations
made on the interpretations of the origin of Polish coal deposits over the last 20 years with an emphasis on coal facies studies. The paper content is related to the conference entitled “Polish Coal” of the 3rd Polish Geological Congress, which is planned in Wrocław in September 2016. This conference covers a broad spectrum of issues such as: geology of coal basins and coal deposits, coal-bed methane, economic geology, petrology and geochemistry of coal, as well as origin, coalification and quality of coal.
