ABSTRACT

In the area of Neogene’s basin Tomislavgrad, back in the 19th century, found were
brown coal in the northern part, area of the village Eminovo selo and lignite in the area
of Kongora village, in the southern part of the basin. Exploration in this area began after
the Second World War, with a different scope and intensity. With a purpose to prove the
quantity and quality of coal in Kongora, 49 new exploratory boreholes were drilled with
a total length 6055 m, and over 1000 different coal analyses. This complex research of
geological and tectonic relations, development of coal seams and deposit composition,
hydro geological and engineering geological properties as well as extensive laboratory
tests for coal quality determination have proven lignite quality and reserves. This paper
provides basic information of the coal reserve and the quality which indicates sufficient
to supply coal as fuel for two 275 MW each fired power plant for more than 35 years.
Kongora coal deposit represents only 4% of the total productive coal area which
improve the reliability and security of the domestic power supply in Bosnia and
Herzegovina.

Keywords: complex geological exploration, lignite deposit, quality and reserves
