Galatia Channel:Acknowledgments

Jump to navigation Jump to search


This study would have been impossible without the cooperation of numerous mining companies, past and present, who granted us access to their workings and to their geologic data. Particularly deserving of thanks are the American Coal Company, Black Panther Mining, Five Star Mining, Gibson County Coal Company, Peabody Energy, and Sunrise Coal. We thank the National Museum of Natural History Small Grants program for partial funding of the fieldwork on which this research is based.
