The petrographic characteristics of bed samples of gas coal from different locations in the Kuznetsk Basin are studied. Analysis of reflection patterns permits identification of the petrographic features affecting the behavior of coal in high-temperature coking. Additional assessment of the physicochemical properties of the coal permits expanded utilization of the large reserves of gas coal in coke production.
