Most brown coals in the Latrobe Valley Depression yield between 1 and 4 per cent ash (dry coal basis). However the concentration and distribution of ash forming constituents both within and between individual seams and areas show considerable variations. The inorganic constituents present in the original peat no doubt reflected the elements inherent in the particular plants present in the swamps, these being obtained from the swamp waters in which the vegetation grew. The present distribution of these constituents reflect post-depositional migration (by diffusion) through the coal (King, et al, 1983; Brockway and Borsaru 1985).
