Pyrite Mineral Uses and Properties

Pyrite and Coal Mining. Sulfur occurs in coal in three different forms: 1) organic sulfur, 2) sulfate minerals, and 3) sulfide minerals (mostly pyrite with minor amounts of marcasite). When the coal is burned, these forms of sulfur are converted into sulfur dioxide gas and contribute to air pollution and acid rain unless they are removed from the emissions.

The pyrite suns are said to occur in a narrow black shale layer, situated on top of a coal seam 100 feet (91 metres) below surface. This is not unusual. In Britain, where most coal resources are of Carboniferous age, "shales are the dominant rock of the Coal Measures, generally forming the roof of coal seams" (Raistrick and Marshall, 1939, p.21).

University of Minnesota's Mineral Pages: Pyrite

Many coal deposits contain disseminated pyrite and as the coal is burned the pyrite's sulfur component oxides to form sulfur dioxide. In the atmosphere, sulfur dioxide combines with moisture to produce sulfuric acid. This is an important source of 'acid rain', which can damage building stones and monuments, cause a decline in natural lake

Effects of pyrite on the spontaneous combustion of coal

Sep 28, 2015 · Three forms of sulfur exist in coal: pyrite, sulfate and organic sulfur (Lu and Liu 1999).Pyrite plays a vital role in coal spontaneous combustion. The specific heat of pyrite is only onethird of that of coal but with the same heat absorption, the temperature rise of pyrite is three times higher when compared to coal.

Pyrite: The Real Story Behind "Fool's Gold"

Pyrite forms in sedimentary rocks in oxygenpoor environments in the presence of iron and sulfur. These are usually organic environments, such as coal and black shale, where decaying organic material consumes oxygen and releases sulfur. Pyrite often replaces plant debris and shells to create pyrite fossils or flattened discs called pyrite dollars.
