Chemical and petrographic data ore presented for 146 samples of cool collected in the Big Sandy District, eastern Kentucky. The data include sample-site locations, sampling conditions, stratigraphic position, megoscopic description of the cool, air-drying loss, proximate and ultimate analyses, Btu content, forms of sulfur, initial deformation temperature, softening temperature, fluid temperature, free-swelling index, concentration of major- and minor-oxides and trace elements, and petrographic analyses.

The field work, classification, and major- and minor-oxide and trace-element analyses were supported through grants from the USGS (U.S. Department of Interior, 14-08-0001-G 602 and 14-08-0001-A 0077). Funding for petrographic analyses was provided by the Kentucky Energy Cabinet.
