The baking and reddening of large masses of strata caused by the burning of coal beds is a str~king feature of the landscape in most of the great western coal-bearing areas. The general character and br6ader effects of the burning

    When the coal burns, it is largely destroyed, but as the overlying clay or shale are baked and fused, they collapse into the area formerly occupied by the coal. Thus, they occupy approximately the same level as the unburned coal. The sulphurous substance may be yellow-colored sand or sandstone, but there is very little sulphur in this formation.

So, the clay (shale) which in Barrovian metamorphism develops a strong foliation (slate, phyllite, schist, gneiss) in contact metamorphism develops a granular texture (the rock hornfels). The analogy is putting a clay pot in a kiln; the clay is simply baked.

    2004-7-12 · The topography in the PRB is dominated by hills, ridges, and escarpments topped by reddish clinker—rock that has been baked and fused by naturally burning coal beds. The PRB provides ideal conditions for natural coal bed fires, with its dry climate, coal that ignites spontaneously, common range fires, and an erosional regime of regional downwasting.
