Coals from Anambra Basin and Middle Benue Trough of Nigeria

Elizabeth Wuyep

Over the years the Nigerian Government has depended so much on hydroelectric power as source of power supply in the Country. This source of electricity generation has not been sufficient because of the attendant seasonal variation in the volume of water and non-development of other sources such as fossil fuel (coal) with which the Country has comparative advantage. This book presents research findings on coal as a reliable source of power generation by examining the technological properties of the coal deposits in both the Anambra Basin and the Middle Benue Trough of Nigeria. The study has clearly identified that coal deposits in the Anambra Basin, sub-bituminous in rank, are suitable for combustion and electricity generation, while those of bituminous rank in the Middle Benue Trough have limited coking potential. This research finding, among other things, makes an invaluable contribution to the Power sector especially in developing an Action Plan for the actualization of coal-fired power plants as a mandate for the Coal-to-Power Project of the Power Ministry of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Petters, 1982, and Ojoh, 1992). Anambra Basin in the Lower Benue Trough is a major coal producing basin in Nigeria where intensive exploration and exploitation activities have been on since 1916 owing to the discovery of commercial coal in Udi near Enugu in 1909 by the Mineral Survey of Sothern Nigeria (Famuboni, 1996).

The Benue Trough originated from Early Cretaceous rifling of the central West African basement uplift. It forms a regional structure which is exposed from the northern frame of the Niger Delta and runs northeastwards for about lOOOkm to underneath Lake Chad, where it terminates. Regionally, the Benue Trough is part of an Early Cretaceous rift complex known as the West and Central African Rift System.
