Samples of Mongolian coal from the Khuden field are studied (specifically, technical and elementary analysis, heat of combustion, mineral characteristics, petrographic composition, clinkering properties, degree of oxidation, mechanical strength, and thermal stability). The Mongolian coal samples are classified in terms of genetic and technological parameters, and prospects for the use of such coal are assessed.
